... an important book, arriving at a critical moment for the future of music education in our state schools. (Bette Gray-Fow Classroom Music)
To say that the book is timely is to understate. The book is both accessible and scholarly wise, and will serve as a rich resource for at least some part of the twenty-first century. (John Finney Music Teacher Magazine 2010-12-01)
Received 4 out of 5 stars (Toby Deller Classical Music 2010-09-25)
This book plays a key role in sharing good practice from different sectors. I would urge you to read the chapters that fall out-side your particular areas of expertise most closely. (Jonathan Savage British Educational Research Journal, 37:5)
...the chapters on 'The role of singing' and 'The initial and ongoing education of music teachers' are thought-provoking...Nearly all chapters have suggestions for further reading, for websites of interest, and for all chapters there are full references to texts and research cited in the body of the chapter. (Sue Anderson Singing: Voice of the Association of Teachers of Singing (Issue 60))
...is obviously incredibly diverse and ... very effectively reflects this situation. The book is unusual in attempting to cover such a breath of content and provides a valuable starting point for reading , particularly to those who are new to the field. (Julie Evans The British Journal of Music Education (28:2))
The transformational power of music education is illuminated throughout every page of this remarkable book. The authors vividly illuminate its wide-ranging position in society, constantly challenging the reader with new insights that relate to both the art and science of music-making. In a society that increasingly values visual stimulus and instant gratification, music can sometimes seem peripheral and little more than ornamental. In reality it has the capability to change lives, an inspirational message communicated here with passion and conviction. A virtuoso and aspirational achievement! (Professor Colin Lawson Royal College of Music)
As a reader from abroad, I found this collection to be a major achievement for music education in the United Kingdom. The United States and its music education leadership has much to learn from the chapters in this book. It shows not only how our two cultures struggle with the same fascinating challenges for music teaching and learning but also how we can be inspired to work for reform. Books like this are vital for all interested in the future of music education here and around the world. (Peter R. Webster Northwestern University)
Based on excellent summaries which link research and theory with exemplars of teaching and learning practices in music education in the United Kingdom, this book presents a great starting point for new entrants to the profession as well as a valuable source of reflection for more experienced colleagues. (Dr Pamela Burnard University of Cambridge)
This is an indispensible book for all those involved in music education. It gives a comprehensive overview and explores and analyses the current state of music education in the UK in the twenty-first century. (Dr Martin Fautley Birmingham City University)
I think the book is excellent, an essential companion for anyone in music education, whether they are a trainer, teacher or manager. At this time of significant change I believe music education provides an excellent tool to help us plan and develop future learning opportunities. (Mr Peter Chivers National Association of Music Educators (NAME))
