Summary "This open access book offers international and interdisciplinary insights into the learning cultures, curricula designs and emancipatory initiatives within higher music education institutions. Drawing together empirical case studies from Austria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, the UK and the USA, the contributors look at the discourses surrounding employability and artistic standards that form the traditional foundation of conservatoire education. They also examine how gender, class and race/ethnicity pervade the creation and performance of music.
