Frank Callaway 1919-2003: Honorary President of ISME 1988-2003
Meyer, John
International Journal of Music Education, v22 n2 p163-184 2004
Frank Callaway, the fourth Honorary President of ISME, was a New Zealander who contributed greatly to raising the profile of music education in both that country and Australia. His essentially democratic view of music education was moulded by his teaching experience at King Edward Technical College in Dunedin. At the University of Western Australia he created a school of music which placed the discipline within the orbit of both education and the humanities, as well as later developing professional musical training. The performance of music was an essential component of all of his educational projects. Strongly influenced by Grainger's advocacy of world music education, he used his international positions as well as the creation of major musical events in his home country to promote the value of cross-cultural interchange.
