Abstract and Keywords

The topic of assessment in the Italian educational system has gained a more and more central role in the national scientific and institutional debate. The recent reforms of the Italian school system have focused on the integration of the assessment procedures within the European framework and the changes to the Italian school system. The chapter focus is on the analysis of the assessment of music learning in several kinds of schools with music teaching, both as general music education and as the training in the performance of a musical instrument. It will offer a comparison between the normative prescriptions and the evolution of the pedagogical, psychological, and didactical approaches in the different aspects of music teaching/learning. Attention is also given to assessment in high artistic and musical education (conservatories) and universities, where the need of a “professionalizing” curriculum perfectly combines with the principles of specialized teachings.

Keywords: Italian educational system, music learning, music assessment, teaching, education
