From its first appearance, this volume has been considered a standard text in music education courses worldwide, tracing the development of music as an educational force from the dawn of European civilisation in ancient Crete, Sparta, and Athens to today. It is a fascinating exploration of the people involved in teaching music over the centuries and their whole way of life, providing a systematic survey of the educational, musical, religious, social and political factors that have led to what is now known as music education; substantial reference is made to trends and events in other lands as well as England. This second edition includes supplementary chapters investigating the recent history of music education, bringing the historical record up to date, and there is a foreword by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Master of the Queen's Music.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Indispensable... The profession of music education has at last been provided with a detailed and documented history... the volume should be on the shelves of every library and musician. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MUSIC EDUCATION It is no mean feat to have extended this seminal book in so constructive and newly illuminating a manner as is the case here. [Gordon] Cox and [Peter] Dickinson (who nimbly edited this new edition) deserve to go to the top of the class. MUSIC TEACHER
