Active engagement with children’s worlds and their music making, as practitioner-researchers,
has the potential to promote a more profound understanding of children’s creative
endeavours and for uniquely viewing (and co–creating) “spaces” and “creativites”
in dialogic communicative practice. Burnard
As Moss (2014) explains, a neoliberal outlook “depoliticizes” everyone and acts as
if there were no alternative. Its approaches and principles are so taken for granted
that they become invisible and we do not ask the democratic, deeper, difficult questions
about aims, directions or purposes. Young
Children learn to work with children of all different ages and with different interests,
taking each other’s wishes into account. Everybody’s input is valuable, irrespective
of the child’s or carer’s age, background or (musical) experience. Ursem
