Remote Music: How It Happens in Western Australia's Pilbara
Younghusband, Peter
International Journal of Music Education, v23 n2 p159-163 2005
Karratha is a town in Australia's remote north-west, 1600 km north of a capital city, Perth. It was a long way from "musical civilization" and a totally different teaching situation for a music teacher used to English classrooms. The first challenge was the dominance of sport at the school, but Peter Younghusband tells how he worked to make music a central part of the school and of the community. Now, wild horses would not drag him away. (Contains 1 figure.)
