Example text

Bowman The business of reflection in determining the true good cannot be done once for all . . It needs to be done over and over again, in terms of the conditions of concrete situations as they arise. In a moving world solidification is always dangerous. —John Dewey “Musical action that is fully mindful of musical results is the necessary condition of music-making and, therefore, of an effective music education” (see p. xxxii, this volume). So states the first of the orienting ideals that have framed discourse among MayDay Group members since the group’s inception.

12 Praxial orientations to music education thus reject transmission/reception models of teaching and learning. They insist that genuinely musical doings are intentional— that they are mindful of musical results. 13 Again, praxis-oriented musical action (as distinct from mere activity) is mindful of the differences it makes in the lives of those who engage in it. Similarly, on grounds advanced by pragmatist theory, what constitutes “truth” or trustworthy knowledge is not a matter of natural fact, but of habit.

The” way is at once necessarily plural and guided by rigorous, stringent standards of care that are grounded in the exigencies of the particular situation and shared by successful practitioners. 35. These have familiar names: Orff, Kodaly, Gordon, Band, Jazz Education, and on and on (and on). 36. Or, for that matter, by more mid-range results, such as when “what works” is judged only in terms of its efficacy for school music as an end in itself. 37. Indeed, it may well be that these so-called (wrongly, I think) extra-musical and extrascholastic benefits are of even greater ultimate importance than those within school with which we concern ourselves so obsessively.
