Male Voices

Stories of Boys Learning through Making Music

Edited by: Scott D Harrison

Male Voices brings together Australia's leading thinkers and practitioners in the field of music. Paul Holley - the conductor of Queensland's highly-acclaimed, award-winning, choral ensemble Birralee Blokes - discusses the phenomenal success of his choir. As well, internationally recognized scholars Scott Harrison and Bob Smith provide research into adolescent participation and indigenous music making respectively. Additionally, the book focuses on the interface of technology and music, instrumental music, and how music contributes to academic skills, social interaction, and life skills. From the banks of the Australia's Yarra to remote communities of the Far North, Male Voices presents a diverse range of experiences - with parents, teachers, musicians, men, and boys offering perspectives on their experience of music for the benefit and understanding of others.
