Heartland Excursions Summary

Heartland Excursions: Ethnomusicological Reflections on Schools of Music by Bruno Nettl

In Heartland Excursions, one of today's foremost ethnomusicologists takes the reader along for a delightful, wide-ranging tour of his workplace. Bruno Nettl provides an insightful, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, always pithy ethnography of midwestern university schools of music from a different perspective in each of four chapters, alternating among three distinct voices: the longtime professor, the "native informant," and the outside observer, an "ethnomusicologist from Mars." If you've ever been to a concert or been connected to a university witha school of music, you ll discover yourself--or someone you know--in these pages.

Heartland Excursions Reviews
