Summary As Australia becomes increasingly multicultural, there are many that would argue that the teaching and learning of music at educational settings can be carried out in a number of ways where cultural context and authenticity is imperative. This paper discusses the main arguments of teaching and learning in music education and provides some theoretical perspectives of teaching African music as groundwork for the discussion and findings. This paper is part of a wider study called 'Smaller steps in longer journeys' and. provides insight into the teaching of South African music in Melbourne. Three South African voices (my own as tertiary music educator, an artist in schools and a primary music specialist) through reflection and interview data considers 'how' and 'why' African music is taught The discussion presents an openmindedness of music when it travels to a new country where the pedagogy is the process of production and exchange, a social-discursive practice whereby process and understanding is more important than just product. As music requires no visa it will continue to travel and be shared in different context where pedagogical practice considers teacher, learner and knowledge.
