A Philosophy of Music Education: Advancing the Vision (Paperback)Bennett Reimer (author)
- We can order this
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.

"The author is one of the few people who actually has something unique and important to say about the present state of music education in the world." - Dr. John Kratus, Michigan State University
"This is a broad, sweeping text. While the core issues and perspectives of the previous editions have been maintained, here they are framed and explored in light of contemporary perspectives, theories, research findings, and curricular developments. This book examines the unique value of music and music learning, explains why school music education has been such a successful enterprise in the past, and proposes future directions for continued growth." - Dr. Steven Morrison, University o f Washington
"Reimer is perhaps the most progressive thinker in music education because he is so knowledgeable and compassionate about current trends in philosophy, education, and psychology." - Dr. Carlos Xavier Rodriguez, University of Iowa
"This 'revisioning' of his philosophy stakes some new ground as it adroitly and cogently addresses the tough questions faced by twenty-first century music educators. This volume is required reading for everyone concerned with the theory and practice of American music education." - Dr. James F. Daugherty, University of Kansas
