The Inclusive World of Music: Students with Disabilities and Multiculturalism
Knapp, David H.
General Music Today, v25 n1 p41-44 Oct 2011
The Tanglewood and Housewright Symposia concluded that music programs should include music from other cultures, as well as teach students of all abilities. Yet teachers sometimes feel uncomfortable attending to both of these values. Some music teachers have found creative solutions to incorporating world music into their curriculum for students with disabilities. Two case studies regarding steel band and taiko drumming are discussed. Advice for teachers of students with disabilities is also included. (Contains 1 figure.)
