(p.577) Chapter 31 Transcultural childhoods
The Child as Musician

Alexandra Kertz-Welzel

Oxford University Press

In their daily lives, children experience many different musical cultures. By balancing and merging these many varied traditions, children create their own transcultural musical identities. This chapter explores transcultural aspects of musical childhoods by using a cross-cultural perspective. The aim is to show how the concept of transculturality can offer intriguing insights into the musical lives of children around the globe. The musical cultures of children in Germany serve as an example for using the musical-ecological approach and the German concept of Musikvermittlung as the facilitation of music. Utilizing the notion of transculturality, children’s musical worlds can serve as exemplars of cultural hybridity in times of globalization, and an illustration of how to deal with globalization in an effective way.

Keywords:   transcultural childhoods, musical cultures, Germany, music, cross-cultural, musikvermittlung, children’s musical worlds, musical childhoods
