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.

Waldron, Janice – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2008
What professional musicians say and do affects the attitudes and actions of music educators in the classroom. One example comes from influential conductor/composer, Gunther Schuller, who, in his controversial 1997 book, "The Compleat Conductor", defines, espouses, and recommends his own "philosophy of conducting." An examination of his ideas and,…

Dyndahl, Petter – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2008
In this article, the aim is to address different forms of relationship between deconstruction, as coined by Jacques Derrida, and research perspectives on music education.

Senyshyn, Yaroslav – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2008
An aesthetic distinction between good music and the good in music is crucial for a philosophy of music education. Ultimately, it is not the music's fault, as it were, that someone may view it as being "not good" in either a social or aesthetic context. Regardless of how music is colored it remains an entity unto itself and thus untouched by our…
