Community Music in Germany: reinventing the wheel?
Prof. Dr. Burkhard Hill, Hochschule München
The lecturer exposes the field of community music in Germany. Although there are many activities, which could be labeled as community music, the term was not used in Germany very often in the past. Because music education mostly focusses western art music and its history, the social impact of music is discussed and applied only in social work and therapeutic effects are the subject of music therapists. But there is no interdisciplinary discourse. The slowly growing interest in community music is driven by two impulses. First the European PISA survey forced school reforms in Germany and arts education is identified as a hopeful means to enrich all day school concepts. Secondly a film called “Rhythm is it!” made community dance projects popular and rays out to music activities. But community music cannot solve the problems of school development and music education. And several out school activities need more conceptual frameworks. Additionally there is a lack of relevant apprenticeship and the author discusses contents and formats of necessary training programs. At last he compares the German concepts of cultural education and socio cultural work, which are similar to community arts / community music. So in Germany community music must not be invented totally new. But several arguments speak for joining the international discourse.
