Notes

Abstract: Multiculturalism is a central issue of educational policies for the western countries, which
have now become very multicultural themselves. The presence of various dissimilar groups
with their own cultural identities poses a number of questions regarding ways of their
assimilation in the educational system and the teaching approaches that consider interaction
and reciprocation with the dominant cultural group. Music education plays a significant role
in the acquisition and re-enforcement of national identity, the adaptation in wider localities,
the transmission of moral and cultural values, meeting and recognising the Other. As a result,
a number of research studies have been carried out on the subject of educational application
of music materials from around the world. Based on the view that music should be placed
within the cultural framework that determines values, structures and attitudes and the notion
that learning about our own musical culture can be achieved through learning the musical
cultures of others, we are here presenting the trends prevailing in Greek music education.
Proposing a model of intervention for dealing with learning and social difficulties in
collaboration with the Centre for Research and Application of School Psychology
(Department of Psychology, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens), we are going to
examine teaching approaches to multiculturalism and music education.
