The Musical Playground Global Tradition and Change in Children's Songs and Games By Kathryn Marsh Book 431 pages Through a synthesis of ethnomusicology and music education, The Musical Playground provides unique insights into children's musical playground activities across a comprehensive scope of social, cultural, and national contexts. Kathryn Marsh brings readers to urban and rural school playgrounds in Australia, Norway, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Korea, showing how children transmit, maintain, and transform their games. Copious examples throughout the book and Web site demonstrate characteristics of game genres, children's generative practices, and reflections of cultural influences on game practice. A valuable index maps the distribution of more than 300 games across an array of cultures and geographical locations. In addition, Marsh offers valuable, practical recommendations for developing pedagogies that reflect more child-centered less Eurocentric views of children's play, musical learning, and musical creativity.
