"The Oxford Handbook of Music Making and Leisure contributes to interdisciplinary, global conversations about music making as an intrinsic part of human existence. Throughout the chapters, one is reminded of the nuances and complexity of leisure and the variegated roles and meanings that music plays within it. The frame of 'music making and leisure' presents and permits possibilities, provocation, and other potentialities, both explicit and implied. The book may inspire readers to think differently and to encourage the same in others and perhaps help to effect positive change in the world." -- SirReadaLot
"Highly recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates; professionals; general readers."--CHOICE
About the Author
Roger Mantie (PhD, University of Toronoto; MM, Brandon University) is Associate Professor at Arizona State University. His teaching and scholarship are informed by his fourteen years as a school music educator. His work emphasizes connections between schooling and society, with a focus on lifelong engagement in and with music and the arts. A widely published author, he is coeditor of The Oxford Handbook of Technology and Music Education (2017).
Gareth Dylan Smith is an independent scholar based in London. He is at the forefront of research in popular music education, serving as editor for the Journal of Popular Music Education and The Routledge Research Companion to Popular Music Education (2016), with numerous journal articles and book chapters published in the field. Gareth is a drummer and a longtime musical collaborator with other rockers, punks, theater musicians, and songwriters, playing on various recordings and performing in bars, clubs, festivals and theaters. His next commercial musical release will be a concept album entitled Tinker Tailor Soldier Rock. Following his cultural-psychological study of drum-kit players I Drum, Therefore I Am: Being and Becoming a Drummer (2013), his current research includes a phenomenological study of embodiment in drum-kit performance. His life in music, leisure, and academia is comically chronicled at drdrumsblog.com.
