More About This Title Pictures of Music Education
Estelle R. Jorgensen's latest work is an exploratory look into the ways we practice and represent music education through the metaphors and models that appear in everyday life. These metaphors and models serve as entry points into a deeper understanding of music education that moves beyond literal ways of thinking and doing and allows for a more creative embodiment of musical thought. Seeing the reader as a partner in the creation of meaning, Jorgensen intends for this book to be experienced by, rather than dictated to, the reader. Jorgensen’s hope is that the intersections of art and philosophy, and metaphor and model can provide a richer and more imaginative view of music education.
Estelle R. Jorgensen is Professor of Music at the Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University Bloomington. She is author of In Search of Music Education; Transforming Music Education (IUP, 2003); and The Art of Teaching Music (IUP, 2008). She is editor of Philosophy of Music Education Review.
