Coppola, William J.; Taylor, Donald M. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2022
Cultural humility has gained traction as a potentially transformative construct in social justice work, compelling practitioners to engage in a lifelong process of self-reflection and self-critique to recognize the limitations of their knowledge, practice openness toward others, and actively work to mitigate systemic inequities. In this paper, we…

Ellefsen, Live Weider – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2022
In this article, I explore the theoretical and analytical potential of the concept of genring, which here refers to productive acts of temporary interpretation and signification, wherein existing classification systems and genre categories in the social are operationalized and (re)negotiated. Foucault and Butler's theories of discursive subjection…

Regelski, Thomas A. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2022
Since post-war II, music education has advocated its presumed aesthetic benefits. "Aesthetic advocacy" became instituted through the abundance of publications by Bennett Reimer (e.g., 1970, 1989, 1995, 2003). That aesthetic meme is still influential. The debate about "Music Education as Aesthetic Education" MEAE may be…

Smith, Tawnya D. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2022
I grew up immersed in the sounds of nature. However, throughout childhood, the ambient soundscape that once thrilled me was usurped by human-made sounds. I conducted an autoethnographic inquiry to seek the ways that my early and middle childhood music education diverted my attention from local soundscapes to a near-exclusive focus on…

Goodrich, Andrew – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2022
Although the practice of peer mentoring has had a place in education for many years, it has not routinely served as a platform for racialized students to use their voice in constructing their classroom learning. The history of music programs in the United States, with their dependence on Eurocentric music and disregard for the music of racialized…

Janes, Hayley – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
Music teacher educators are not alone when grappling with the challenge of preparing students to navigate diversity and confront inequity and injustice. Educators and researchers from multiple disciplines face similar challenges and have responded with various approaches related to cultural multiplicity. The concept of "cultural…

Bernard, Cara Faith; Rotjan, Matthew – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
In this article, we query how action is contextualized and used in music education, centering the discussion around problems of calling for change without taking action, what Paulo Freire terms "narration sickness." Narration sickness manifests in social media, conferences, and professional development sessions--where words convey ideas…

VanDeusen, Andrea – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
Educational institutions and teacher education preparation programs tend to reflect White Eurocentric beliefs and values. Additionally, White preservice teachers may have little understanding of their own cultural backgrounds, as they are largely unexamined in a structure of White norms. In this paper, I draw upon elements of critical whiteness…

Coppola, William J. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
In this paper, I critique the ways in which music education professionals--especially the privileged voices within our field--engage in dialogue through social media outlets such as Facebook. While social media has become a valuable and ubiquitous discursive tool within our field, especially in that it theoretically removes the "ivory…

Sadler, Katherine M. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
In this article, I critically assess the development and application of entrepreneurship education in the performing arts, specifically among performance students of Western European art music in the United States. I seek to locate this education in the sociocultural and economic context of neoliberal capitalism and to demonstrate that this…

Bates, Vincent C. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
The dual aims of this essay are to consider some ways in which school music reproduces neoliberal rationalities and to suggest possibilities whereby playful aspects of music education can open spaces for disruption and resistance. After defining key terms (capital, neoliberalism, rationality, social reproduction, and alienation), patterns of…

Powell, Sean Robert – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
In this paper, I critique the ideology of competition in school music using the philosophy of Herbert Marcuse, including his concepts of the performance principle and "The Great Refusal," which he saw as defining aspects of what he termed a one-dimensional society. Under a one-dimensional neoliberal educational regime, as can be found in…

The present article brings to light the effects of neoliberalism on the music education system in Chile, one example of such a system in Latin America. Relevant research literature is analyzed without the intention of achieving a theoretical universality regarding the effects of neoliberalism on music education. The article reveals that…

McPhail, Graham; McNeill, Jeff – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
In this paper we explore the adoption of a neoliberal turn in New Zealand's education system and its consequences, focusing particularly on secondary school music education. In the 1980s, New Zealand was one of the first states in the Western world to implement comprehensive neoliberal economic policies. Some 35 years later, education in New…

Väkevä, Lauri – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
This article considers the challenge of epistocracy to the political philosophies of music education. Epistocracy has recently resurfaced in the form of Jason Brennan's criticism of representational democracy. Brennan claims that only the brightest citizens are capable of using decision-making power. As there is only a small number of such…
