Building Vibrant School-Community Music Collaborations: Three Case Studies from Australia
Bartleet, Brydie-Leigh
British Journal of Music Education, v29 n1 p45-63 Mar 2012
This paper explores the relationship between school music and community music in Australia. While many Australian schools and community music activities tend to exist in relative isolation from one another, a range of unique school-community collaborations can be found throughout the country. Drawing on insights from "Sound Links," one of Australia's largest studies into community music, this paper explores three case studies of these unique school-community collaborations. These collaborations include a community-initiated collaboration, a school-initiated collaboration and a mutual collaboration. The author brings these collaborations to life for the reader through the words and experiences of their participants, and explores their structures, relationships, benefits, and educational and social outcomes. These descriptions feature important concepts, which could be transferred to a range of other cultural and educational settings in order to foster more vibrant school-community collaborations.
