HUIDOBRO SALAZAR, María Gabriela. About Music for civic education: Juan Egaña's proposal for educating the youth in Chile. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2019, vol.73, n.231, pp.59-71. ISSN 0716-2790.

This article analyzes the role and the value that the intellectual Juan Egaña Risco (1769-1836) recognized to music in his educational essays and curricular proposals, in the context of the independence of Chile and the configuration of its republican system. Inspired by the theories of ancient Greek philosophers, such as Plato and Aristotle, and convinced that education should be oriented to the integral formation of virtuous citizens, Egaña considered that music was an essential discipline. Through it, it would be possible to prepare students to learn aesthetic and ethical distinctions, as well as to inspire learning in other areas of knowledge, which would contribute to citizen education.

Keywords : Musical Education; Juan Egaña; Classical Reception; Philosophy of Education; Citizen Education.
