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 period • and instead of the conceptual combination “former GDR” uses simply “GDR” [less ▲]
