Editorial Reviews

Review


"El Sistema is a social action tool aimed at facilitating occupational, pedagogical, social, and ethical salvation of children and young people through the instruction and collective practice of music. Recommended." --Choice


"Geoffrey Baker has done real service to all of us who think about issues of music education, and indeed of education, far beyond the ES project. In the current neoliberal context, we need such critiques to keep us on our toes and, ultimately, to help us care for our children."--Music and Letters
