The Child as Musician

Judith A. Jellison

Oxford University Press

Ideas related to equity, access, barrier-free design, and other technological advancements have led to the application of universal design in education. This chapter focuses on music teaching in inclusive music settings using an approach that recognizes students on a continuum of learners, guards against overuse and overspecialization of individual adaptations, and, to the extent possible, involves all students in common activities. This chapter begins with brief discussions of music and quality of life, building a culture of inclusion, and issues concerning definitions of disabilities, labeling, and attitudes. In the main, the chapter presents principles of a universal approach using numerous teaching strategies as a way to increase opportunities for children with disabilities to participate more fully and independently in a variety of meaningful music experiences in settings with their typically developing classmates.

Keywords:   universal design, meaningful music, disabilities, inclusive music classrooms, culture, music experience, technology, music teaching
