Summary

The content of music programs in U.S. schools historically has been associated with the art and traditional music of western Europe. The K-12 music curriculum has seldom reflected the ethnic diversity of U.S. society. The Music Educators National Conference maintains that school music must be more broadly defined to encompass this ethnic diversity. The principal aim of this book is to provide a pragmatic approach to the integration of world music traditions in general music classes, particularly at the upper elementary, middle school, and high school levels. Chapter 1, "Teaching Music from a Multicultural Perspective" (W. Anderson, P. Campbell) is an introducation to the rationale and teaching approaches presented throughout the book. The following eight chapters offer lesson plans, complete with music, as well as background information and extensive bibliographies, discographies, and filmographies. The eight chapters are: (1) "North America" (E. McCullough-Brabson, and others); (2) "Latin American and the Caribbean" (D. Olson, S. Ahyoung); (3) "Europe" (P. Campbell); (4) "Sub-Saharan Africa" (B. Lundquist); (5) "The Middle East" (G. Sawa); (6) "South Asia: India" (W. Anderson); (7) "East Asia" (Han, K-H, and others); and (8) "Southeast Asia" (P. Campbell, W. Anderson). A glossary index, and numerous black and white photographs and illustrations are included. (JB)
