Music Matters

A New Philosophy of Music Education

David J. Elliott

Designed as a core text for foundations of music education or philosophy of music education at both the undergraduate and graduate level, Music Matters presents a ground-breaking philosophy of music that provides music educators with critically reasoned perspectives on the "why, what, and how" of music teaching and learning. In a wide-ranging examination of music as a diverse human practice, Elliott constructs a compelling, multi-dimensional concept of music as knowledge-in-action, and argues convincingly that music deserves a central place in the education of all.
