[en] Music education in the former GDR is to be understood in the framework of the
development of a socialist notion of humankind. The present essay
• offers, accordingly, less of a glimpse into the didactic models and educational approaches that are distinct from those in West Germany
• deals instead with music education as a means for developing an “ideal” socialistic human being. Education in art, athletics or other subjects could replace music
• refers to the disciplinary literature of the GDR in the years 1955-1972
• for that reason sticks primarily to the present, refers, however, repeatedly to that time
• and instead of the conceptual combination “former GDR” uses simply “GDR”
