Abstract and Keywords

Latinos represent one of the fastest growing segments of the school-aged population in the US, yet they continue to be underserved within educational systems that operate with minimal regard for students’ home cultures and the unique needs of underserved groups. In music education, problems of access, language, and cultural responsiveness impact Latino students. Inequities in the classroom might stem from the space found and tensions between the world of music education and student home culture. This chapter will explore how pedagogical practices in music education often misalign with Latino culture, and how teacher beliefs and attitudes impact Latino children. This examination can help to interrogate curriculum and instruction for the purpose of considering how they can align more closely with Latino students’ lives, both within and outside the music classroom.

Keywords: culturally responsive, Latinos, music education, Latino culture, pedagogy
