This chapter employs a cultural psychology lens to explore the ways in which Balinese children's learning of traditional music and dance is shaped by their culture's uses and valuing of music, and beliefs and practices concerning teaching and learning. The discussion begins by emphasizing reasons for children's learning of music and the methods through which children acquire music with reference to literature on Bali that, since the 1930s, has tangentially alluded to children as learners and performers. It then interprets aspects of Balinese culture and society as sites of music learning and teaching that are culturally specific. This demonstrates how children's music activities are important contributions to the life of Balinese communities and how community expectations mandate teaching strategies and learning styles. Much of the discussion is based on fieldwork in Bali conducted between 1999 and 2007.
