About this item

Engaging in Community Music: An Introduction focuses on the processes involved in designing, initiating, executing, and evaluating community music practices. Designed for both undergraduate and graduate students, in community music programs and related fields of study alike, this co-authored textbook provides explanations, case examples, and ‘how-to’ activities supported by a rich research base.

The authors have also interviewed key practitioners in this distinctive field, encouraging interviewees to reflect on aspects of their work in order to illuminate best practices within their specializations and thereby establishing a comprehensive narrative of case study illustrations.


  • a thorough exploration and description of the emerging field of community music;
  • succinctly and accessibly written, in a way in which students can relate;
  • interviews with 26 practitioners in the US, UK, Europe, Canada, Scandinavia and South Africa, where non-formal education settings with a music leader, or facilitator, have experienced success;
  • case studies from many cultural groups of all ages and abilities;
  • research on life-long learning, music in prisons, music and ritual, community music therapy, heavy metal, leisure and recreation, business and marketing strategies, online communities—all components of community music.
