Abstract and Keywords

Music education today is rife with proposals that appeal in different ways to different people. Finding objective criteria to establish new paradigms and evaluate its efficiency is difficult because music educators often work from personal experiences, subjective beliefs, or traditional ideologies. This article calls for a local and cultural consensus about the essence of the music that is being taught; the steps and stages of music learning which are individually performed; and the final goals and functions within a particular educational culture.

Keywords: music education, evidence-based practice, music teaching, music learning, music educators
