Music, Women & Pianos in Antebellum Bethlehem, Pennsylvania by Jewel

<I>Music, Women & Pianos in Antebellum Bethlehem, Pennsylvania</I> by Jewel

Item #: 9780934223904


Your Price: $55.00


Signed by the author, this hardcover volume documents not only the academic and music curricula offered at a distinguished seminary, but the importance of piano study from a sociological viewpoint, music making in a gendered environment, and performance opportunities available for nineteenth-century women. A comparison of the Seminary's curricula with that offered at the Moravian Nazareth Hall for men in nearby Nazareth confirms the Moravians' claim that women and men were equally intelligent; hence, women deserved a comparable education.

Aimed at an audience of general readers as well as music scholars, Music, Women, and Pianos offers fresh insights into American upper- and middle-class gender roles, the origins of middle-class music instruction, and the importance of women's contribution to society.
