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…

Shorner-Johnson, Kevin – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2019
Sociologist Max Weber identified Puritan constructions of virtuous time and the sin of sloth as having explanatory power for the origins of Puritan action and capitalist economies. This article expands upon Weber's thesis to examine how the sin of sloth was reinterpreted to encourage or prohibit psalm singing, singing schools, and later forms of…

Perrine, William M. – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2019
The pedagogical aim of liberation, as drawn from critical pedagogy, poses significant philosophical problems. In this paper, I argue that the fundamental right to direct the education of children rests with the family situated within a particular local community. This authority is then delegated to the state through the institution of the school…

Wang, Jui-Ching – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2019
To respond to the current advocacy of a transcultural inquiry into music education philosophy rooted deeply in Western civilization, the primary purpose of this essay is to provide a broader alternative to examine the phenomena of music teaching and learning to bridge the philosophical gap between the West and the East. This essay also attempts to…

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,…

Stanton, Burke – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2018
This essay engages a decolonial border methodology to unveil dichotomies of theory/practice, and scholarship/education as contested spaces of multiplicity, dominated by a coloniality of power. Musicking's profound connections to embodied experience make it a locality ripe for decolonial activity. Furthermore, I argue that Christopher Small's…

McPhail, Graham – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2018
In this paper I begin to theorize what secondary school music education might look like "post-deconstruction." In particular, I explore the argument for a reconsideration of the importance of conceptualization in the process of music education. I argue that is it through coming into contact with powerful conceptual knowledge that…

Chapman Hill, Stuart – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2018
In this paper, I apply John Cage's wide musical embrace of sound to the field of music education and explore its curricular and practical implications. In particular, I ask music teachers to consider themselves teachers of sound, or "sound teachers." I argue that privileging sound as our chief concern leads us to reconsider the ways we…

Abramo, Joseph Michael – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
Participation in competition festivals--where students and ensembles compete against each other for high scores and accolades--is a widespread practice in North American formal music education. In this article, I use Marx's theories of labor, value, and phantasmagoria to suggest a capitalist logic that structures these competitions. Marx's…

Hess, Juliet – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
In the twenty-first century, many music education scholars seek to reconceptualize music education toward social justice. Critical pedagogy is at the forefront of this shift. However, as teachers aim toward equity through employing critical pedagogy, some undesired effects of using this teaching approach may arise. In this paper, I consider the…

Kanellopoulos, Panagiotis A. – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2016
This paper suggests a framework for re-thinking the relationships between power and knowledge in music education. Informed by Jacques Rancière's notion of equality it explores how a dialectic between knowledge/mastery and ignorance/equality effects a rupture in the canonical relationships between knowledge and authority. Further, and based on a…

Lapidaki, Eleni – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2016
This article considers the contribution that Jacques Derrida's work "Of Hospitality" might make to higher music education as it unsettles the usual ascription of normative value to learning and teaching music at the university. Along these lines, what is most at issue in the encounter with Derrida's thinking is the concomitant notion of…

Schmidt, Patrick – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2016
This article examines the relationship between authority and music. It starts with the proposition that music--as an art or an educative enterprise in Western environs--remains a highly idealized enterprise and this idealization creates an alibi for action that is characteristically narrow and guided by authority. Schmidt claims that authority is…

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…

Tan, Leonard – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2016
In music education, thinking is often construed in terms of acquiring conceptual knowledge of musical elements. Research has found, however, that instrumental music educators have largely neglected conceptual teaching and learning. This begs the following questions: What is the nature of thinking in instrumental music education? How should…
