Webinar! Univeristy of Cambridge Coordinator: Dr Pamela Burnard.


José Luis Aróstegui (BMus, BEd, PhD Ed) is Professor at the Granada University Music Education Department, Spain. His major training is in western classical music, curriculum theory and qualitative research. He has carried out postdoc research at the University of Illinois (2001-2003 & 2009) and participated in many research projects, convening an EU evaluation major about music teacher education in Europe and Latin America (2004-2007).


Implications of globalization in music education from two different perspectives will be discussed in this presentation: From above (neoliberal globalization) and from below (dialogical globalization). The first is promoted by transnational companies and implies a cultural homogenization. The second is carried out by people from virtually all over the world interchanging musical ideas both for production and consumption. The result is a musical playing characterized by a cultural hybridization bringing out at the same time features of global and local cultures at the same time. This hybridization will be widely illustrated in this presentation throughout musical excerpts from different genres. In the end I will argue that music education has to acknowledge those shifts and change consequently in order to take into account this broader contemporary social context of music and learning which, by and large, affects youth cultures.
