Beethoven or Britney : the great divide in music education by Robert Walker ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"School music education in Australia is in crisis, according to The National Review of Music Education (2005). Most children have little or no access to quality music teaching. And nothing is being done about it. Why is this, when we have overwhelming evidence of how music-making enhances the core disciplines of mathematics, languages and a mastery of English? In music teaching you get what you can afford. A few, mostly private, schools are centres of musical excellence, the majority offer little beyond recordings of popular music. Primary schools fare the worst: 80% have no trained music teacher on staff. The knock-on effect in secondary schools is clear." -- Back cover
