About this book

This book offers insights into the exciting dynamics permeating creative arts education in the Greater China region, focusing on the challenges of forging a future that would not reject, but be enriched by its Confucian and colonial past. Today’s ‘Greater China’ – comprising China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan – has grown into a vibrant and rapidly transforming region characterized by rich historical legacies, enormous dynamism and exciting cultural metamorphosis. Concomitant with the economic rise of China and widespread calls for more ‘creative’ and ‘liberal’ education, the educational and cultural sectors in the region have witnessed significant reforms in recent years. Other factors that will influence the future of arts education are the emergence of a ‘new’ awareness of Chinese cultural values and the uniqueness of being Chinese.​

Reviews

“This volume is much more than an introduction to another culture; one gains an understanding of an emerging educational system in music and visual arts through the eyes of teachers. … Each chapter has sufficient depth that the novice reader can understand the policies and pressures which have an impact on curricula in each country.” (Richard Colwell, British Journal of Music Education (BJME), Vol. 32 (3), November, 2015)

“This book offers, a range of topics related to music, complete and well researched information for teachers, students and anyone interested in music. … There is a clarity of thought and ideas throughout all the chapters in this book, and they certainly afford well researched, first-hand information to anyone wanting to know about traditional and contemporary music in Greater China.” (Sujatha Gomathinayagam, He Kupu, Vol. 3 (4), 2014)
