Hedgecoth, David M. – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2019
Over the past quarter century, charter schools have evolved from a fringe educational philosophy to a prominent academic option for American school children and their families.

Richerme, Lauren Kapalka – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2019
Contemporary music education leaders suggest ambiguous definitions of "diversity," often assuming it both unquestionably good and compatible with equity.

Kertz-Welzel, Alexandra – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2015
In recent years, comparative education and comparative music education became important fields of research.

Richerme, Lauren Kapalka – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2015
Despite calls for the inclusion of the body, emotion, and sociality into music education theory and practice, the complex interplay of these aspects of being remains largely unarticulated and ignored.

Abramo, Joseph – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2014
Are there qualities of sound and the experience of listening that educators can extrapolate to inform the philosophy and practice of music education? In this essay, I imagine a music education where sound--how it behaves and how we experience it--serves not only as the subject of study, but generates the framework of the pedagogy. A sonic music…

Woodford, Paul – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2014
This paper is an invited response to a one published by David Elliott in The Music Educator in 2012 in which music teachers were enjoined to encourage children to use music's expressive power as a political tool in pursuit of social justice.

Informal instructional approaches have long been an important component of a complete education in general and of music education in particular. But informal approaches have often been subject to bandwagon over-enthusiasm, with proponents inflating their virtues beyond what the concept appears to warrant. In this paper I will, first, examine the…

Westerlund, Heidi – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2008
When searching for justification for music education, researchers often make an analytical distinction between ends and means as well as between intrinsic and extrinsic values as related to them. These distinctions are often combined with a view in which ends with stable intrinsic values are seen as above means as extramusical. The article…

Allsup, Randall Everett – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2005
Each of the four philosophical models that Estelle Jorgensen has put forth contests, adheres to, or adjusts the hierarchical relationships between dualities, specifically the theory and practice of musical learning. Moreover, models of polarity, according to Jorgensen, accommodate dualities by buffering edges, emphasizing the interconnectedness of…
