Finding Middle Ground

Music Education in Urban Settings

(p.105) 7 Finding Middle Ground
The Musical Experience

How can integration of the arts into classroom curricula and instruction, integration that honors the arts as discrete content areas, address the absence of arts instruction in today’s schools? What role can arts educators play in facilitating this trend toward a stronger and more significant presence for the arts in culturally rich and diverse yet challenging urban school environments? This chapter poses answers to these questions, considering issues in urban school reform, arts education in the urban context, teacher professionalization and development of communities of practice, and the possibilities inherent in collaborative partnerships. The chapter also includes a review of relevant research and reports results of longitudinal research in collaborative urban partnerships.

Keywords:   arts instruction, urban school environments, collaborative partnerships
