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…

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, Frederik; Varkoy, Oivind – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2012
In the current world of education, politics and public opinion, musical experience is increasingly threatened. It is designated ever more as an expendable luxury.

Oivind Varkoy discusses instrumentalism as a trend in educational politics and pedagogical thinking.

Davis, James A. – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 1997
Attempts to begin a process of pedagogical self-evaluation by considering how David Hume's Is-Ought fallacy can serve as an instrument with which to evaluate the content presented in a given teaching situation. Investigates the Is-Ought fallacy through an in-depth examination, and relates it to specific pedagogical issues in music education. (CMK)

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. People with different cultural and ethnic backgrounds are expected to coexist and respect each other. Different values are set free from hierarchical conceptual models. Many stories about the…

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…

Mantie, Roger – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2012
This article serves to extend a critique initiated by Allsup and Benedict in their 2008 PMER article, "The Problems of Band." Using the work of Michael Foucault as a theoretical and methodological basis, I consider ways in which today's large ensemble paradigm, particularly that of the wind band, has resulted in an ongoing antinomy in…

This article examines the educational function of the North American wind band program. Issues such as band education's methodological control, perceived lack of self-reflection or inquiry, its insecurity concerning program legitimacy, and the systemic fear that seems to permeate its history provide the framework for this exploration. With a…

In the present age, which is often signified as post-modern or knowledge-intensive, the calls for learning echo loud. Discussions of learning, as well as teaching, permeate almost all levels and arenas of our society, and have a sure place in every-day conversation as well as scientific debate. The concept of learning can be understood and…
