A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

A nation’s musical and cultural life is determined to a large extent by the manner in which music is passed on to the next generation. That process connects generations by nurturing the dynamic interaction between musical heritage and musical innovation and is central to shaping a nation’s cultural identity, spiritual wealth and even policy making.

The nature of this interaction is examined here in a variety of contexts that range from traditional music education in community based settings, to the teaching of classical music in public and private schools and academies. Tracing the cultural and academic journey of traditional music from the remotest corners of Irish society to the mainstream of Irish musical culture is one of the most significant accomplishments of the book.

As a national study "Passing It On" will appeal to those interested in the history of Irish music, culture and education. In the broader context, the study contributes to our understanding of how music’s transmission is underpinned by the dominant ideologies, values and media of the time.

About the Author:

Marie McCarthy has been Associate Professor in the School of Music at the University of Maryland since 1995. She has edited two colloquia volumes and has contributed chapters to several books.
