The Primary Connection: Music and Education

(p.17) Chapter One The Primary Connection: Music and Education
Composing Japanese Musical Modernity
Bonnie C. Wade
University of Chicago Press

Chapter 1 with Chapter 2 focuses on the environment within Japanese musical modernity that is comprised of infrastructures in four spheres of activity--education and the government, industry and commerce--and, in the field of music, connectivities among them that afford composers opportunities. Chapter 1 traces how and why the government put music into the educational infrastructure, the means by which the new persona of “composer” emerged, how composers might achieve musical competence, and, in turn, engage in musical education of others.

Keywords:   Education, Japanese government, composer, musical competence, modernity
