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…

Shevock, Daniel J. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
The 21st century has been defined by ecological crises, and these crises have been absent from most critical conversations in music teaching and learning. Satis Coleman's music education writings, influential in the 1920s and 30s, focused on music and nature. The intellectual history presented in this essay, a historiography of ideas and thinkers,…

Bradley, Deborah; Goble, J. Scott – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
What can be done to re-orient a field of education like music, when far too many teachers teach the way they were taught using traditional procedures that stupefy and deaden students to the subject matter, rather than working creatively to invigorate and empower them to become thoughtfully engaged, independent music makers? The essays in this…

Regelski, Thomas A. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
The Tractate was written following the first meeting of leading music education scholars in Buffalo. It was not, however intended as a scholarly essay. Rather, it was a declaration of assorted, numerous issues the next few meetings of founding MayDay Group members could engage with in organizing efforts at creating an organization predicated on…

Waldron, Janice; Veblen, Kari K. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
First established in Scotland in the 1870s, civilian Scottish Pipe Bands are now a global intergenerational phenomenon. In Canada, they are a diasporic reminder of the 70,000 Scots who emigrated there in the 19th century. Currently, there are more SPBs per capita in Canada than any country outside of Scotland, with an estimated 240 civilian SPBs…

In this article, we consider Western Standard Music Notation (WSMN) as a normative communication system that, through representing certain cultural frameworks, may pose obstacles to musical learning, particularly in general music education. To focus this examination, we discuss different critical aspects of what we call the "notation…

Gardiner, Robert – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
In the face of increasing teacher burnout, in this paper I explore the theoretical implications of political accountability measures on student music teacher self-efficacy in England. I propose a necessary shift from institutional priorities to weaker personal aspirations as a route towards more sustainable teaching. Through reflecting on my own…

Stark, Jody – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
This article explores Dewey's theory of experience and its potential as a theoretical tool to notice, and make sense of, music teacher learning. Beginning with the assumption that music teachers' capacity to grow professionally is integral for change in the field of music education, I present several illustrative examples of how Dewey's theory…

Bates, Vincent C. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
The main purpose of this essay is to critically analyze why social class receives relatively little attention in American social justice scholarship in music education. An associated aim is to make a case for more extensive considerations of class, including a much stronger intersectional alliance between critical class and antiracist scholarship.…

Giroux, Henry A. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
Henry Giroux begins this discussion by observing that he thinks there is a lot to be learned about what happens to higher education when authoritarians win elections and a liberal democracy morphs into something else. Giroux believes that under the regime of Donald Trump, higher education is under siege, and its stated purpose to produce the…

Matias Recharte – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
Music, considered as a field of discourse, has important implications for how educators think and act within their classrooms. Based on the work of Ruben Gaztambide-Fernandez, Murray R. Schafer, and feminist music education scholars, this paper aims to delineate these implications and to propose "sound education" as an alternative.…
