Dichotomies in Music Education--Real or Unreal?
Espeland, Magne
Music Education Research, v12 n2 p129-139 Jun 2010
In this keynote, the author discusses dichotomies having to do with: (1) technology/digital proponents versus non-technology/analogue proponents; (2) a formal/formalist position versus an informal/informalist position; and (3) educator/teacher views versus artist/musician views. The author often wonders what the essence of these dichotomies are, what they mean to the development of the music education profession, and to what extent they are real, in the sense that they represent opposite views concerning values and directions in music education as a profession. In this keynote, the author reflects on some of these questions. (Contains 1 figure and 6 notes.)
