Musicians as Lifelong Learners - 32 Biographies

£24.99

Product description

Published in 2009 by Eburon Delft this thick volume documents Rineke Smilde's research into the lives of 32 modern, mainly Dutch, musicians, grouped within age categories within types of musicians (Soloists, Teachers/Music Educators & Musicians with a Portfolio Career). Published in English.

This fascinating collection of 32 narrative learning biographies of musicians from different countries and with various careers examines key developments in their professional careers. Musicians with a performing career, music pedagogues and musicians with a portfolio career, who combine different roles within various areas of engagement, are portrayed. Within a strong and up-to-date theoretical framework, and using a solid methodology Smilde's research widens the readers horizons and deepens understanding of the modern multi-faceted music profession. The life stories and discussions form an inspiring background for developing the learning environments of higher music education. The main thread throughout the biographies is the question of how these musicians learn as 'lifelong learners'.

In excellent condition. Slight scuffs to edge of cover, a couple of small red printers stains to cut edges of pages.
