Music Matters

A Philosophy of Music Education

Music Matters

Why is music significant in life and education? What shall we teach? How? To whom? Where and when?

The praxial philosophy espoused in Music Matters: A Philosophy of Music Education offers an integrated sociocultural, artistic, participatory, and ethics-based concept of the natures and values of musics, education, musicing and listening, community music, musical understanding, musical emotions, creativity, and more.

Embodied-enactive concepts of action, perception, and personhood weave through the book’s proposals. Practical principles for curriculum and instruction emerge from the authors’ praxial themes.
