Chapter 5 -- Redefining music literacy common core to common score
Oare, Steve R.; Bernstorf, Elaine D.; Giray, Selim. Chapter 5 -- Redefining music literacy common core to common score. In: Contemporary research in music learning across the lifespan : music education and human development by Jennifer A. Bugos (Editor.), pp 51-62
This book examines contemporary issues in music teaching and learning throughout the lifespan, illuminating an emerging nexus of trends shaping modern research in music education. In the past, most music learning opportunities and research were focused upon the pre-adult population. Yet, music education occurs throughout the lifespan, from birth until death, emerging not only through traditional formal ensembles and courses, but increasingly through informal settings as well. This book challenges previous assumptions in music education and offers theoretical perspectives that can guide contemporary research and practice.
