Abstract and Keywords
This article discusses the lack of systematized knowledge about international music education. The discussion represents a step forward in viewing music education from a global perspective and in putting together the accumulated knowledge of music in the so-called Global Information System in Music Education. The author presented this idea for the first time during her keynote address at the Sixth International Research in Music Education Conference (Exeter 2009). It is based on her experience as a professor and researcher in music education, and especially from the challenges she faced as president of the International Society of Music Education.
