Male Voices: Stories of Boys Learning through Making Music

Male Voices describes a diverse group of Australian boys and men actively engaging in making music. The book discusses how these males may need to overcome societal resistance and stereotypical images to pursue music but, when they achieve this, music makes a powerful, joyful difference to their lives.

This volume brings together leading thinkers and practitioners in the field - from the conductor of the award-winning, mould-breaking Birralee Blokes, Paul Holley who comments on the phenomenal success of his choir, through to Scott Harrison and Robert Smith who bring research into adolescent participation and Indigenous music-making respectively.
