Summary "Parents use music in family life not only to guide their children's musical development, but also to make relational connections and to accomplish practical tasks, Parenting musically charts these uses of music among a diverse group of families in home, school, and community settings. Author Lisa Huisman Koops focuses on family musical interactions using the concepts of musical parenting (actions to support a child's musical development) and parenting musically (using music to accomplish extra-musical parenting goals), arguing for the importance of recognizing and valuing both modes. She also offers an additional construct, practical/relational musicking, to add to the detailed analysis of family musical engagement. Throughout she shows how families who embraced both practical and relational musicking expressed satisfaction in long-term musical involvement"-- Provided by publisher.
