Facing the Music: Shaping Music Education from a Global Perspective

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book is dedicated to the many musicians and educators with whom I have had the privilege to meet and work all over the world during the past thirty-odd years, as performers, teachers, colleagues, consultants, and sources of inspiration. I worked with many of them closely for years or even decades. Others I visited while they were living and working in circumstances that would have driven many away from a life in music: in run-down houses in India, villages in Vietnam, townships in South Africa. I have been humbled and inspired by the work of these colleagues; in spite of adverse circumstances, they just continue to practice, play, and share their music, with unabated passion for the quality and value of their work.

The musicians I feel most indebted to are my two Indian music gurus: Ustad Jamaluddin Bhartiya and the late Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, who, during more than twenty years, have nurtured my understanding of the beauty and intricacies of North Indian classical music. I particularly remember the many early mornings I spent at the house of Jamaluddin Bhartiya, listening to and taking part in his practice after first prayers and hearing stories of great musicians while having tea afterward. The memory of the hours I spent listening and learning at the feet of Ali Akbar Khan in his school in California still fills me with humility and awe, as do thoughts of the many hours I spent in his music room gathering information for articles and his authorized biography, which is still awaiting completion.

Other musicians also greatly contributed to my understanding of world music and education. Foremost among these are my close colleagues at the Amsterdam
