Description: What is music? Does music deserve a place in general education? If so why? Music Matters ,develops new answers to these questions through a wide-ranging examination of Music as a diverse human practice. The result is a ground-breaking philosophy of music education that provides critically reasoned perspectives on the nature and significance of performing, listening, musicianship, multiculturalism, creativity, consciousness, curriculum development and more. Music Matters is exceptional for the attention it pays to many aspects of music and education that past music education philosophy either misses of ignores altogether. Following an incisive critique of conventional thinking, Elliot develops a multidimensional concept of music that explains why music-making and listening are unique forms of thinking and unique forms of the most important kinds of knowing human beings can achieve. In a richly detailed narrative that examines a wealth of recent philosophical foundation allows teachers to affirm to themselves, and others, that music deserves a central place in the education of all people. Among many working ideas of this new philosophy is a distinctive concept of "curriculum-as-practicum" that explains how music educators can fulfil their educational mandate. Through intended first as a text for pre-service and in-service music teachers, Music Matters is for anyone who takes a serious interest in music and music education.
