Engaging in a sound musicianship

Engaging in a sound musicianship

(p.208) Chapter 11 Engaging in a sound musicianship
The Child as Musician

Andrew R. Brown

Oxford University Press

Our contemporary sound world is ever expanding, driven largely by advances in modern technologies that continue to expand a child’s ability to engage with music. This chapter explores how musical practices have responded to the changing technocultural context and describes conceptual frameworks designed to assist with understanding these practices. The chapter outlines modes of creative engagement that provide a guide to the range of musical activities that a child can undertake. It explores contexts for meaning that highlight the value of undertaking activities across private, social, and cultural settings. The final section discusses four perspectives of a sound musicianship—sonic, psychological, embodied, and cultural—that define particular dimensions of a child’s musicality and highlight the types of skills and understandings that can be developed through their engagement with music.

Keywords:   music, sound, musicianship, technocultural, musical practices, engagement, culture, musical development
