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,…

Varkoy, Oivind – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
The point of departure in this article is the hegemony of technical rationality when it comes to the justification of music education. This is considered as an example of uniformity, sameness, and homogeneity, or worse, simplicity and naivety--or even worse, a sweet innocence--regarding understanding and thoughts about life, society, and culture…

Rolle, Christian – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
We are living in a time of social and cultural changes. As in other disciplines, the foundations of music education are being increasingly challenged.

Varkøy, Øivind – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
The times we live in are described as pluralistic and diverse. In the Nordic countries, societies are often described--even officially--as multicultural.

Georgii-Hemming, Eva – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
The quality of education is currently considered to be a concern of the highest political priority. However, quality assurances of all kinds seem to be built on and result in a number of quantitative measures. In this essay, I discuss the traditional and philosophical meaning of the concept of quality and how it is being used today, but above all…

Tan, Leonard – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2015
In this paper, I compare all three editions of Bennett Reimer's "A Philosophy of Music Education" with early Chinese philosophy, in particular, classical Chinese aesthetics.

Tan, Leonard – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2014
At present, instrumental music education, defined in this paper as the teaching and learning of music through wind bands and symphony orchestras of Western origin, appears embattled. Among the many criticisms made against instrumental music education, critics claim that bands and orchestras exemplify an authoritarian model of teaching that does…

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…

Bradley, Deborah – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2009
This paper examines how significant musical moments, occurring within singular contexts, may be performative to the development of community. While community is often viewed within music education as an unequivocal good, I argue that this result may not always be beneficent. In this paper, I look at one unique performative moment through the lens…

Howe, Sondra Wieland – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 1998
Argues that there should be a broader definition of the history of music education by challenging the traditional focus of music education history. Believes that there are four alternative perspectives to the canon in music education: (1) African-Americans; (2) the female experience; (3) African-American women; and (4) music in oral traditions.…

Caswell, Austin – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 1995
Presents a fascinating comparison of the musical styles and respective theologies between an Anglican church service and a black fundamentalist service. Maintains that the Anglican service depends on a logocentric vision of the world, separating emotion from intellect. The black church exemplifies a more holistic, transcendent experience. (MJP)
