European Perspectives on Music Education, Volume 4: Every Learner Counts (edited by Natassa Economidou Stavrou and Mary Stakelum)

The fourth Volume of the EAS book series European Perspectives on Music Education will be published in Winter 2015.

This book addresses democracy and inclusion in music education. It presents theoretical perspectives, research approaches and insights from practice in a range of settings from early childhood education to advanced musical training and poses questions such as: What do we know of our learners, their needs, interests and aspirations? In what ways does education enrich their experiences of music? Do some learners count more than others? How do we give the right to every single learner to be involved with meaningful music activities?

European Perspectives on Music Education, Volume 4, presents teachers, students, researchers and all those interested in music education with original research on democracy and inclusion in music education. There are invited contributions from authors in Cyprus, England, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal and Wales.
