X ISME Conference Tunisia July 1972
X ISME Conference Tunisia July 1972
The ISME will hold its Tenth International Conference in Tunis and Carthage/Tunisia from July 13th to 20th 1972 under the auspices of the Tunisian Ministry of Culture and Information. Host to the 1972 meeting will be the Tunisian Board of Music and Popular Arts.
The general theme of the X ISME Conference is MUSIC and SOCIETY
Music Education in its Aesthetic and Social Context. A phenomenon of contemporary life throughout the world is the extent to which young people have found music an element in social behaviour. As this spontaneous musical expression commonly reflects little relationship to organized music education there appears to be a need to reassess the aims and methods of music at all levels of general education. To fulfil the above purpose the conference programme will consider
Music in training of teachers
Music at all levels of school and college instruction
Music as an out-of-school activity. It will also consider
The contribution of audio/visual aids and the mass media of radio and television to music education. Being the first such conference to be held in the Mediterranean area and the first on the African continent a series of special sessions will be devoted to music education in these parts of the world:
Music education in the nations around the Mediterranean
Music education in the nations of the African continent.
The conference will further aim to extend the
Cooporation between ISME and other international bodies whose activities' relate to music and education.
The ISME Research Commission will organize a plenary session devoted to recent developments in research in music education.
