Music, Gender, Education
This book focuses on the role of education in relation to music and gender. Invoking a concept of musical patriarchy and a theory of the social construction of musical meaning, Lucy Green shows how women’s musical practices and gendered musical meanings have been reproduced, hand-in-hand, through history. Dr Green views the contemporary school music classroom as a microcosm of the wider society, and reveals the participation of music education in the continued production and reproduction of gendered musical practices and meanings.

'Green's new book provides the first major marriage between a theoretical approach to gender and an experiential study of secondary education … she persuades us to think hard about the roles that girls and boys are going to fill in music when they become adults.' Music and Letters
