This chapter investigates the ways in which children become attuned to a collective musical culture. Using the concept of ‘musical enculturation’, it traces the musical pathways traversed by children from a range of cultural traditions: from the beginnings of musical speech in infancy and early childhood, through their encounters with media and technology, to their engagement with and in American ‘ethnic’ cultures. Writing in the context of growing multiculturalism in the USA, the chapter focuses on immigrant children and their families, groups who are still close to an identifiable and distinctive culture that is based upon the mores and values of a particular ethnicity. Five ‘ethnic’ traditions are examined: Irish-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Vietnamese-Americans, African-Americans, and Native Americans.
