Culture, society and musical learning

Spruce, Gary (2007). Culture, society and musical learning. In: Philpott, Chris and Spruce, Gary eds. Learning to Teach Music in the Secondary School: A Companion to School Experience (2nd ed). Learning to Teach Subjects in the Secondary School Series. London: Routledge Falmer, pp. 16–27.



In the limited space I have here, I focus on the way in which long-standing beliefs and assumptions about music influence the way in which music is taught. I address the ways in which such assumptions have come to be seen as self-evident and suggest strategies for addressing some of the negative impact this has on music teaching and learning.
