To…

Robinson, Mitchell – Arts Education Policy Review, 2019

Many education…

Bautista, Alfredo; Wong, Joanne – Arts Education Policy Review, 2019
The professional development (PD) opportunities typically offered to school music teachers in most countries have been described as sporadic, unsystematic, capricious in both purpose and content, and hence ineffective. Among other consequences, this has seriously limited the kinds of questions that music-specific PD researchers have been able to…

The intrinsic and extrinsic benefits of music education incorporate academic, social, emotional, and behavioral spheres.

Music education programs have declined significantly in Australia in the last few decades and access to such…
