In the last few years expressions like "European convergence," "European Higher Education Area," "European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System" and others have become more and more usual not only in academic circles but also even in the mass media. But to what extent are these expressions valid for all knowledge…

Coady, Christopher; Webb, Michael – British Journal of Music Education, 2017
Recent research on practice-based doctorates in Australia has revealed an institutional preference for "theorised" research approaches aimed at situating studies of practice within established academic paradigms. In this article we examine how the aim of communicating with artistic peers steers the research design and the production of…

Colombo, Barbara; Antonietti, Alessandro – British Journal of Music Education, 2017
The positive role of metacognition in music learning and practice is well assessed, but the role of musicians' metacognitive skills in such a context is not yet clear. Teachers often state that they apply a metacognitive approach during their lessons, but students fail to acknowledge it and report that they become metacognitive learners thanks to…

Zandén, Olle; Thorgersen, Cecilia Ferm – British Journal of Music Education, 2015
This study analyses 10 Swedish music teachers' descriptions of how a new music syllabus and a new credit scale have influenced their practice. In the new curriculum, grading is introduced in year 6 and not, as previously, in year 8. We have therefore focused on the effects of this change on school years 5-7. The new syllabus is much more precise…

Louth, Paul – British Journal of Music Education, 2014
Drawing on the work of the philosopher of science Paul Feyerabend, this paper argues that the popular yet mistaken notion of scientific method has had a deleterious effect on music education by discouraging us from embracing conflict or pursuing counterinductive ways of thinking about music. Feyerabend argues that knowledge advances not according…

Stowell, Dan; Dixon, Simon – British Journal of Music Education, 2014
Technologies such as YouTube, mobile phones and MP3 players are increasingly integrated into secondary school music in the UK. At the same time, the gap between formal and informal music learning is being bridged by the incorporation of students' preferred music into class activities. We conducted an ethnographic study in two secondary schools in…

Fowler, Andrew – British Journal of Music Education, 2014
"Music is both a creative and a performing art" (Hallam, 2006, p. 70). Many musicians and music educators maintain that composing and performing, although related, are essentially different aspects of musical activity. In the professional musical sphere, composition and performance are almost invariably separated; academic studies have…

The article…

Davies, Lloyd – British Journal of Music Education, 2008
The article explores curriculum change in Scottish schools between 1978 and 2000 and its impact on learning and teaching.

However, there is presently only limited reference within music education literature to strategies that either support or enhance our…

Stakelum, Mary – British Journal of Music Education, 2008
Whilst a rationale for the content and organisation of knowledge in a standardised curriculum may be clearly articulated at official policy level, factors may come to bear on a teacher operating at a local level which may work against the successful implementation of the curriculum on the ground. Drawing on a Bourdieuan notion of cultural field,…

This study explores the musical content and human processes of improvisations of children and adults using the phenomenological lenses of time, space and responsivity. Paired improvisational performances of two late-career adult composers and two 7-year-old children were analysed considering a lifespan-related perspective involving the origins of…
