Music Education in Japan.
Abdoo, Frank B.
Music Educators Journal, v70 n6 p52-56 Feb 1984
Japanese children get 10 years of mandatory music studies, resulting in a population which can read music and appreciate it. History, theory, conducting, instrumental and choral performance, and reading and writing of music are taught. Japanese educators often criticize the approach as emphasizing the intellectual rather than the creative. (CS)
