Abstract and Keywords

As youth are increasingly braiding, blending, and blurring learning spaces, modes, structures and practices, they are transforming their music engagement in ways that are increasingly autonomous and self-directed. These are key features of the dynamic, interactive, and transformative approach to music learning that the author refers to as transformative music engagement. The aim is to enable and encourage youth empowerment in music education in ways that strengthen young people’s engagement in music learning, as well as their resiliency and capacity for well-being and musical flourishing. The chapter discusses this conceptualization and considers how educators might create expansive music learning opportunities within a social justice orientation that guide youth toward developing their distinctive voice and the capacity to express and redefine what matters to them in pursuit of social justice.

Keywords: youth empowerment, transformative music engagement, music education, voice, resilience
