Framing Approaches to World Music Pedagogy in a Local Music Culture

(p.128) 8 Framing Approaches to World Music Pedagogy in a Local Music Culture
The Musical Experience

Valerie R. Peters

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines several theoretical perspectives that may be useful in framing curricular approaches to the study of world music pedagogy in local music cultures. These theoretical frameworks were used as a guide to conceptualize three case studies in different local communities in Quebec, Canada. Data from the case studies are used to exemplify the theoretical frameworks. One of the objectives of the case studies was to describe the phenomenon of secondary music students using the tools of inquiry of ethnographers (participant observation, interviewing, and transcribing) to construct and represent their understanding of a local traditional music culture including concepts, beliefs, and values embedded in musical/cultural practices. While theoretical frameworks are helpful in guiding the work of music educators, empirical evidence from the field is needed to validate theoretical claims, as well as exemplify how these claims might be translated into practice.

Keywords:   local music cultures, world music pedagogy, cultural practices, ethnography, empirical evidence
