Facing the Music investigates practices and ideas that have grown from the rise of 'world music', developments in ethnomusicology, and a growing awareness of the need for cultural diversity in music education over the past five decades. Based on over thirty years of hands-on experience at various levels of music education, Professor Huib Schippers provides a rich resource for professionals interested in learning and teaching music in culturally diverse environments; from those working in classrooms and studios to those involved in leadership and policy. In seven chapters that each approach the topic from a different angle, he unfolds the complexities and potential of learning and teaching music 'out of context' in an eminently readable and accessible manner, and comes to a coherent model to approach musical diversity with sense and sensitivity, providing lucid suggestions for translating the resulting ideas into practice.
