Community musicians move in many diverse settings, and facilitate local music activities in a wide array of community contexts including schools, hospitals places of worship, music festivals, and prisons. Underscoring the importance of active participation and sensitivity to context, they integrate activities such as listening, improvising, inventing and performing while emphasizing equality of opportunity and fostering a diverse and welcoming environment for all who wish to partake. In Community Music: In Theory and in Practice, author Lee Higgins, a recognized leader in the study and advocacy of Community Music, investigates an interventional approach toward active music making outside of formal teaching and learning situations. Contextualizing Community Music within today's wider musical landscape, Higgins guides the reader through a historical perspective on the movement and an examination of its traits of practice before concluding with a discussion of future implications and directions for this distinctive and increasingly significant music-making discipline. The first full-length work on the subject, Community Music: In Theory and In Practice is a must-read for anyone invested in music education, music therapy, applied ethnomusicology, or community cultural development, as well as the practitioners and participants of community music activities.

Higgins's passion and vision, as well as meticulous scholarship, make him one of the leading advocates for Community Music today. Community Music in Theory and in Practice is a very strong contribution to the field and a valuable resource. As I write this review, I have begun to tease out areas for further dialogue and debate of my own beliefs and indeed, I think that this is the authors greatest gift. Kari Veblen, International Journal of Community Music A challenging effort to understand the ideas of community music, that obstinate, creative, critical movement of informal music education and social engagement ... Most interesting is the theoretical discussion, which seeks to move beyond the familiar reading of the music workshop as utopian temporary community. George McKay, Times Higher Education Community Music in Theory and Practice represents a major contribution to the field of community music in both setting out the historical development and contemporary scope of the practice of community music and in establishing it as a field for international academic enquiry. ... Higgin's book will undoubtedly serve to enrich the practice of community music, to generate fresh perspectives and to inspire practitioners to 'dream the impossible' into the future. Kathryn Jourdan, British Journal of Music Education

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable read 9. September 2012
Von Rachel Hardiman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
For those who are embarking on a study of or a career in Community Education, this book is a 'must have'. I was on the cusp of making the decision whether or not to commit to MA in Community Music Education. Reading this book tipped the balance in favour of my progressing to further study.
I particularly liked the style of writing, its 'readability', and the ease in which the author makes it possible to understand the philosophical framework upon which the discipline (for want of a better way to put it) of Community Music is based.
I found it refreshing to see in print what has haunted the world of Community Music and Community Musicians....(namely an academic 'snobbery', which serves to suppress anything which is not considered 'high art' - my words, not his).... challenged in such a constructive way.
This book has not only helped me to better understand and appreciate this field, it has also served to help me on a personal level to understand and 'contextualise' significant aspects of my Self in my art form.
I look forward to reading more of Higgins writings and I feel grateful for his contribution to the world of Boundary Walkers.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for anyone who cares about social music making 23. Juni 2012
Von Roman Gertie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Higgins has provided the definitive statement on and about community music. The book is derived from Higgins's experiences as a community music practitioner and scholar. As a result, there is real sense that the author is not writing as an academic exercise, but as someone deeply passionate about the topic.

The title more or less says it all (although in reverse order). Higgins provides countless examples of practice from around the world in Part I, and then goes on to theorize community music making in Part II. The book is definitely written, as the author acknowledges from the outset, from a British viewpoint. As a result, it may take North American readers a little effort to grasp some of the nuances in the perspectives put forward. For anyone interested in the topic (or anyone interested in music making period), however, this book provides an invaluable resource for thinking about the diversity of music making around the world, and how leaders of music making can better understand music as a social practice.

The depth of erudition is astonishing at times, with the author effortlessly engaging everyone from Kant to Derrida. The style of writing, however, is always inviting and never off-putting. A highly enjoyable read from cover to cover.
