By: Bennett Reimer (author)Paperback

1 - 2 weeks availability


For undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in Introduction to Music Education, Foundations of Music Education, History and Philosophy of Music Education, and Contemporary Issues in Music Education. This text advances the philosophy of its previous editions into new territory, recasting it in light of emerging ideas and interests in philosophy in general and in philosophy of music in particular. The foundational concept-that the values of music are gained through direct experiences with its meaningful sounds-remains intact, but is explained and applied in broader, more inclusive scope, with a synergistic philosophical stance as the basis.
