Sociology, like music, is a fragmented field. Just as people attach themselves to ‘old’ and ‘new’ musicological work, so there are old and new sociologies, with the latter tending to reject ‘structural’ explanations in favour of approaches which understand patterns of social organisation as the outcome of collaborative interactional practices. This chapter suggests some of the ways in which the agenda of the sociology of music may differ from that of musicology, but yet make a distinctive contribution to the understanding of musical practices in their cultural contexts.
