This book compares, from a historical and sociopolitical perspective, the respective systems and contents of music education in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan in response to globalization, localization and Sinificiation, with particular reference to Shanghai, Hong Kong and Taipei.

Blackwell Publishing
This book examines recent reforms and innovations in school music education within the changing societies of mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. These three regions share a common historical culture but have had diverse socio-political experiences. Whilst some musical knowledge is common to all three, some is particular to one or two and depends on their responses to globalization, localization and national identity. This book aims to compare how music education in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Taipei has adjusted to the forces of globalization, localization and Sinofication. It contributes significantly to thinking about education reforms in response to this tripartite paradigm with respect to not only Chinese communities but also to the Asia-Pacific Region as a whole.
