The Slogan of the Century: "Music for Every Child; Every Child for Music"
Heidingsfelder, Lauren
Music Educators Journal, v100 n4 p47-51 Jun 2014
This article is a review of literature detailing the 1923 origin of the phrase "Music for Every Child; Every Child for Music" and tracing its use in music education periodicals through the next nine decades. By delving into the now century-old archives for "Music Educators Journal" to research the historic declaration of Karl W. Gehrkens (1882-1975), one finds that a simple statement became a mantra that has spanned generations and continues to represent the field of music education today.
