Abstract and Keywords

This chapter outlines how principles associated with culturally relevant pedagogy may be used in music teacher education to help preservice music teachers better understand how perceptions of race and ethnicity mediate teaching and learning in music. Specific attention is given to race and ethnicity as they relate to (a) facets of cultural identity, (b) the origins of culturally relevant pedagogy in US public education, and (c) the significance of culturally relevant pedagogy in music teacher education. The latter portion of the chapter provides examples of instructional strategies designed to develop a disposition toward culturally responsive teaching among preservice music educators. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the challenges that must be considered when viewing music teacher education through a cultural lens.

Keywords: culturally relevant pedagogy, culturally responsive teaching, music teacher education, race, ethnicity, instruction, music education
