Training music teachers in England – what is the music that is being taught in secondary schools?


Resumen


This article describes policy and practice issues surrounding the training of intending music teachers in England. It tells of how there has been governmental regulation, and ministerial interference, in many aspects of this, from numbers entering the profession, to the nature of what is actually taught and learned in secondary school classrooms. Building on research evidence, it then goes on to describe how there are a number of aspects of teaching and learning which are contentious, and which can have an exclusory function. Finally, it suggests that an international audience may have much to learn from this situation.
