Abstract and Keywords
There is a recent and growing body of research on the activities surrounding music and arts education efforts with incarcerated juveniles. What seems to be missing from this current research are advocacy, educational, and policy efforts from the K–12 school music education community. Who is teaching the music to the youth in these settings? What is being taught and for what purposes? And how might music educators’ understandings of these relatively new programs illuminate the need to extend music teacher education and policy discourse beyond the traditional boundaries of K–12 school institutions? This chapter provides a summary and analysis of the research on music education for incarcerated youth around the globe. It details the practices and pedagogies in youth detention centers with the goal to provide ideas for future actions and practices from the K–12 music education community.
