Handbook of Children’s Musical Cultures

I am excited to be a small part of a most ambitious and impressive collection, The Oxford Handbook of Children’s Musical Cultures, ably led by Pat Campbell and Trevor Wiggins.  Chapters run the gamut from the musical cultures of girls in the Brazilian Amazon (Beatriz Ilari) to education and evangelism in Sierra Leon (Sarah Bartolome). My chapter is a phenomenological study of band members in a Chicago-city high school. The book will be in print any day now.
