Life stories in music education. Ana Lucia Frega: formation and influences

Susana Sarfson Gleizer

Abstract


This article fits within the  framework of music education history research, and aims at rescuing certain memories of Dr. Ana Lucía Frega (Buenos Aires, 1935), a music pedagogue whose professional career spanned several decades. The article uses a qualitative approach , with elements of ethnographic research, while the data and information collected through interviews are contrasted with other sources. The paper analyses the starting point of her international professional development and attempts to determine how her contact with renowned masters (Maurice Martenot, Oliver Messiaen, Arnold Bentley) influenced her personal perspective in the teaching profession and as a teacher of music teachers and researchers. Her presence in the International Society of Music Education (ISME), of which she was President, strengthened her influence in governmental areas. The history of education is built, among other elements, with the contributions of recognized teachers. In this sense, this work seeks to understand the point of view of one of these docents, embodied in her memories and personal reflections about her own musical formation and her early professional stages. Social interaction proved to be a key factor in the consolidation of hers and others’ achievements.
