Sciaroni, Rose – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2019
In the pedagogy of Western classical string music, creativity is often viewed according to the works of luminary composers, suggesting the question: how might string teachers, students, and musicians conceive of creativity? After problematizing standard definitions and ontological ideas of musical creativity, I outline an open model using the…

Orgas, Stefan – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2018
The "nonidentical" is Adorno's term for anything that cannot be grasped by a concept or a system of concepts: sensual experience and events; emotions, understood as unconscious but influential layers of the psychic system; emergent results of interactions; the possibility of non-alienated and non-reified social circumstances. Within…

González Ben, Antía – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2018
In the last two decades, Spain's general music education curriculum has moved beyond the exaltation of so-called Western art music to also include some instances of non-Western musical traditions. This process of diversification is often articulated as entirely positive. The present paper interrogates such discourses, following a post-structural,…

Tan, Leonard; Lu, Mengchen – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2018
In classical Greek philosophy, the pursuit of Truth was done primarily through logical argumentation using language as "Truth tool." The major thinkers in classical China, on the other hand, were famously suspicious of language, with Confucius declaring, "I wish to be wordless." They turned instead to music to express the…

Pio, Frederick – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
This article is divided into three parts: the problem (globalized learning); the consequences (for general music education); and the vision (the music teacher as a cultural figure). In the first part, I claim that the current learning agenda is being increasingly instrumentalized as a carrier of a global education policy driven by technical…

Nikkanen, Hanna M.; Westerlund, Heidi – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
Although rituals are considered central to human life, scholarship on rituals in music education is sparse. This may be due to a more general emphasis on the individual and private at the expense of the social and public aspects of music in education. This article highlights the educational value of school rituals in festivities and celebrations,…

Thompson, Merlin – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2016
While there is a great deal of scholarly inquiry into the Suzuki Method of music instruction, few resources examine how the various aesthetic and pedagogic themes associated with the Suzuki Method are grounded in Dr. Shinichi Suzuki's sense of self. Using the notion of authenticity--being true to oneself--as an investigative underpinning, I trace…

Whale, Mark – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2015
Daniel Barenboim, conductor of the Arab/Israeli West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, claims that "everywhere in the world … [Beethoven's Ninth Symphony] speaks to all people." But just how universal is Beethoven? Does his music exceed cultural boundaries or is Barenboim's idea of a "utopian republic," built, in part, upon Beethoven's…

Allsup, Randall Everett – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2015
Education in the twenty-first century witnessed a profound shift in emphasis from the teacher to the learner, or from pedagogical inputs to learner outcomes. According to neoliberal logic, the teacher is the primary value-add in a relationship that is best characterized as cause (instruction) and effect (learner outcome). As a result, the problem…

Steel, Sean – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2015
Although much has been written about Nietzsche's views on education over the years, and much has also been written about Dionysus, the god of wine and ecstasy, very little attention has been given to the meaning of, and need for, a Dionysian education. This two-part article is an attempt to begin that project. In Part One, drawing Nietzsche's…

Heimonen, Marja – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2014
The article addresses "Bildung" from a Finnish perspective and asks: Are there specific meanings of Bildung that are typical of a certain time and place? The author applies a multi-layered theory of critical positivism, adapting its three-level structure to music education and the concept of "Bildung." First, she discusses…

Benedict, Cathy – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2013
With the use of Bruner's concept of story, broad generalizations from the US, and political philosophy, this article suggests that comparisons between music programs throughout the world are meaningless unless we acknowledge how pervasive, insidious, and menacing is the rhetoric of the global market economy. Political philosophy is one process of…

Winter, Richard – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2013
This paper proposes a theory to explain the remarkable emotional power of our response to abstract music. It reviews and rejects metaphysical arguments derived from notions of a divine spiritual realm and from absolute forms of human reason. Its conclusion is that musical experience is always essentially inter-subjective and potentially…

Schmidt, Patrick – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2013
In the face of globalization, speed communication, and the mashing up of once clearly drawn borders, it seems both pertinent and constructive that music education philosophers make use of comparative frameworks to make sense--and make new sense--of educational and musical events, products, and interactions. However, comparison that is merely…

In this article the role of comparative studies of music education within the globalized world is discussed by looking at a particular initiative in the general education field called "Didaktik and/or curriculum." By drawing on the characteristics and issues of this particular initiative, as well as on some critical perspectives that…
