Editorial Reviews

Review

The tremendous amount of information gathered by the author makes this an extremely valuable work. No one else has accomplished as much. Keene s scholarly treatment of the very complex story of music education in the United States will stand for many years as the standard source of reference. --Allen P. Britton, Dean Emeritus, School of Music, University of Michigan

Tripled with a highly readable writing style, a meticulous treatment of the subject matter along with an excellent chapter-by-chapter series of bibliographic notes, this book will stand as the standard source of reference for the historical foundations of music education in the United States. . . a truly impressive undertaking. --International Trumpet Guild Journal --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Keene's history of American music education is well known to music education majors at numerous universities. The merit given it is well deserved. Keene is precise yet thorough, comprehensive yet accessible. The book is not a difficult read, and leaves the reader well informed. Together with Mark's book on the same subject, the student of American music education is well taught by this work.

I like that this text follows chronologically the order of History in American Music Education. I however did not love Keene's biases. Keene shows biases throughout the book and especially into the 20th century writings. I recommend this book for its helpfulness in reading of American Music Education however it is not worthy of more then 3 stars.
