about

Consider the status of music education as you read Music Education at a Crossroads, a collection of addresses from the Centennial Congress of MENC: The National Association for Music Education. Noted leaders in music education-including Paul Lehman, Bennett Reimer, Samuel Hope, and Michael Mark-joined Brenda Welburn and Anne Bryant in addressing the challenges and opportunities faced by music educators today. The Centennial Congress renewed a shared professional commitment to a comprehensive music education for all students and discussed the impediments to the vision of the Centennial Declaration: "It is the right of every child to receive a balanced, comprehensive, sequential music education taught by qualified music teachers."
Janet R. Barrett is associate professor of music education at the Bienen School of Music, Northwestern University. She served as president of the North Central Division of MENC:The National Association for Music Education from 2004-2006.

Editorial Reviews

The book sets out the challenges for music education in the twenty-first century from the perspectives of a politician, a music educator, a policy maker, and an executive. Each of these individuals provides a crucial piece that contributes to the composite picture, appropriately reflecting that ahcieving universal music education requires the ownership and participation of all stakeholders, not just music educators....Although the authors speak in different voices, their hopes and aspirations for a high-quality music education for all remain unchanged....The book is recommended for all music educators to gain a better understanding of the issues involved in the universalizing of music education.
