Though culture can affect different countries’ preferences for musical style, musicking is a worldwide trend that produces enjoyment for all. However, there is a divide between professional music performance and music education. In order to better engage students, a musicking approach must be implemented into educational curricula and used to promote a platform for inclusivity and community enrichment. Transforming Music Education in P-12 Schools and the Community is a critical scholarly publication that traces the theoretical foundation of current beliefs and practices surrounding music performance and education and discusses how to transform teaching and learning by implementing musicking. The book covers musical engagement for young children and families, universal design in music education in special and inclusive education settings, critical approaches of music teaching and learning in P-12 schools, and reaching communities. It is essential for music teachers, conductors, music directors, instructional designers, academicians, educational professionals, administrators, researchers, and students.
