Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is not a handbook in the traditional sense of the word-it is neither concise nor compact. Instead, it ranges widely over "topics identified by a survey of music education researchers as important issues in music teaching and learning in the 21st century," including multiculturalism, gender issues, training teachers, and the philosophy of research theory. Editors Colwell (music education, emeritus, Univ. of Illinois) and Richardson (music education, Sch. of Music, Univ. of Michigan) present 71 essays with the help of 92 contributors and a profusion of advisors; in this new edition, those contributing essays are not just noted scholars in music education but scholars from many other fields. The essays are organized broadly into ten parts: "Policy and Philosophy," "Educational Context and the Curriculum," "Musical Development and Learning," "Musical Cognition and Development," "Social and Cultural Contexts," "Music Teacher Education," "Music Education Connections," "Neuroscience, Medicine, and Music," "Outcomes in General Education," and "Research Design, Criticism, and Assessment in Music Education." Like the first edition of the handbook, published in 1992, this update is endorsed by the Music Educators National Conference. There are no other works on the subject of this magnitude of scholarship. Highly recommended for academic and music libraries.

Review


Praise for the first Handbook of Research on Music Teaching and Learning "This massive handbook is certainly, as it is claimed, a comprehensive review of research in music education. . . . This is not a dictionary or simple summary of findings but a series of substantial essays. . . . As we might expect, the effect is impressive. The contributors in general write well and clearly and the text is carefully laid out and meticulously referenced. An index of references and a subject index make access to the details of the handbook easy and logical." --British Journal of Music Education


"A welcome addition to the literature on music education because it serves to provide definition and unity to a broad and complex field" --Choice

Outstanding compilation of research. Not "easy reading" but a treasure of useful information for serious students in music education.

Format: Hardcover
The New Handbook of Research on Music Teaching and Learning is a very substantial reference work prepared under high scholarly standards and useful to the music researcher on numerous topics. It was a required text for a doctoral course, but I will keep it for future reference for many years to come. Amazon's price was the best I could find, even beating the used price of several other sites. Delivery was very fast.
