Understanding and responding to music involves several layers of knowledge and insight; processes in which education has a crucial part to play.

The central concern of "Musical Knowledge" is the relationship between intuition and analysis as we engage with music. The dialectic is exposed on three levels: in considering music as a way of knowing; in the context of specific research into musical experience and music education; and as a productive tension in music teaching. This final part will be of direct practical help to teachers. Keith Swanwick suggests ways in which music education can be a vital transaction, giving examples across a range of music teaching, including school and college classrooms and instrumental studies. In addition to teachers, the book will be of interest to anyone who makes or responds to music.
