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.

Cain, Melissa – British Journal of Music Education, 2015
The binary opposition between "own music" and "other's music" is the "result of deep conditioning" (Drummond, 2010, p. 118) and is almost impossible to overcome.
