Inquiry in Music Education: Concepts and Methods for the Beginning Researcher, Second Edition, introduces research and scholarship in music education as an ongoing spiral of inquiry. Exploring research conventions that are applicable beyond music to the other arts and humanities as well, it offers a sequential approach to topic formulation, information literacy, reading and evaluating research studies, and planning and conducting original studies within accepted guidelines. Following the legacy begun by Edward Rainbow and Hildegard C. Froehlich, this book expands what is meant by music education and research, teaching tangible skills for music educators with diverse instructional goals and career aspirations. The second edition addresses the changes in methods due to technological advances, a proliferation of new scholarship, and an awareness of the impact of place and culture on researchers and research participants. This edition features: the most current information on research tools, strategies to remain up-to-date, and expanded supplemental online materials (see inquiryinmusiceducation.com) case studies that reflect recent research and discuss issues of gender, race, and culture previously absent from mainstream scholarship an acknowledgment of the assessment demands of contemporary K-12 schooling a chapter devoted to mixed methods, arts-based, and practitioner inquiry assignments and other resources designed to be friendly for online course delivery chapters from contributing authors Debbie Rohwer and Marie McCarthy, bringing additional depth and perspective. Inquiry in Music Education provides students with the language, skills, and protocols necessary to succeed in today’s competitive markets of grant writing, arts advocacy, and public outreach as contributing members of the community of music educators.

Margaret S. Barrett and Sandra L. Stauffer We live in a “congenial moment for stories” (Pinnegar & Daynes, 2007, p. 30), a time in which narrative has taken up a place in the “landscape” of inquiry in the social sciences. This renewed interest in storying and stories as both process and product (as eld text and research text) of inquiry may be attributed to various methodological and conceptual “turns,” including the linguistic and cultural, that have taken place in the humanities and social sciences over the past decades. The purpose of this book is to explore the “narrative turn” in music education, to - amine the uses of narrative inquiry for music education, and to cultivate ground for narrative inquiry to seed and ourish alongside other methodological approaches in music education. In a discipline whose early research strength was founded on an alignment with thesocialsciences,particularlythepsychometrictradition,oneofthekeychallenges for those embarking on narrative inquiry in music education is to ensure that its use is more than that of a “musical ornament,” an elaboration on the established themes of psychometric inquiry, those of measurement and certainty. We suggest that narrative inquiry is more than a “turn” (as noun), “a melodic embellishment that is played around a given note” (Encarta World English Dictionary, 2007, n. p. ); it is more than elaborationon a position, the adding of extra notes to make a melody more beautiful or interesting.
Narrative. Inquiry. in. Music. Education. I wondered at Barrett and Stauffer's use of the phrase “troubling certainty” in the title of the book and in relation to music education. I wondered how they wanted readers to read the title.

This volume focuses specifically on narrative inquiry as a means to interrogate research questions in music education, offering music education researchers indispensible information on the use of qualitative research methods, particularly narrative, as appropriate and acceptable means of conducting and reporting research. This anthology of narrative research work in the fields of music and education builds on and supports the work presented in the editors’ first volume in Narrative Inquiry in Music Education: Troubling Certainty (Barrett & Stauffer, 2009, Springer). The first volume provides a context for undertaking narrative inquiry in music education, as well as exemplars of narrative inquiry in music education and commentary from key international voices in the fields of narrative inquiry and music education respectively.

This volume provides an understanding of various research methodologies that have been used in music education projects. These methodologies include: historical research; quantitative research; narrative inquiry; action research; ethnography; case study; interpretative phenomenological analysis; arts-based methods; and mixed methods. Each of these research methodologies is detailed, before examples of music education projects that have used these methodologies are described. A separate chapter is devoted to each methodology, and each chapter has been written by a researcher with extensive experience and knowledge of the methodology in question. The book project is an initiative of the Australian and New Zealand Association for Research in Music Education (ANZARME).This association is the peak body for music research across the two countries. ANZARME promotes and supports all styles of research in all avenues of music education. The book will assist all those who are undertaking research in music education, particularly future researchers in music education, such as postgraduate research students. The text will assist researchers in understanding the many available research methods, and will provide clarity in choosing the most appropriate method for their particular research.

The Handbook of Qualitative Research in American Music Education is a resource for music education researchers, music education graduate students, and P-16 music teachers. Qualitative research has become an increasingly popular research approach in music education in the last 20 years and until now there has been no source that clarifies terms, challenges, and issues in qualitative research for music education. This Handbook provides that clarification and presents model qualitative studies within the various music education disciplines. The first section of the text defines qualitative research, provides a history of qualitative research in music education, clarifies epistemological foundations and theoretical frameworks and addresses quality in qualitative research. The approaches of case study, ethnography, phenomenology, narrative, and practitioner inquiry are addressed in the second section. Part III examines data collection and analysis with regard to observations, interviews, documents and multi-media data. Within the 11 chapters in the fourth part of the book authors provide syntheses of qualitative research within various areas of music education (i.e., early childhood, strings, and teacher education). The final part of the book examines technology, rigor, ethics, and the future of qualitative research.
Looking back at the literature in music education one finds several “early soundings” that signaled an interest in practitioner inquiry in music education. Pernecky's article in a 1963 publication of the Bulletin for the Council of ...

This volume offers chapters written by some of the most respected narrative and qualitative inquiry writers in the field of music education. The authorship and scope are international, and the chapters advance the philosophical, theoretical, and methodological bases of narrative inquiry in music education and the arts. The book contains two sections, each with a specific aim. The first is to continue and expand upon dialogue regarding narrative inquiry in music education, emphasizing how narrative involves the art of listening to and hearing others whose voices are often unheard. The chapters invite music teachers and scholars to experience and confront music education stories from multiple perspectives and worldviews, inviting an international readership to engage in critical dialogue with and about marginalized voices in music. The second section focuses on ways in which narrative might be represented beyond the printed page, such as with music, film, photography, and performative pieces. This section includes philosophical discussions about arts-based and aesthetic inquiry, as well as examples of such work.
Narrative inquiry, though, “provides a means to re-conceptualize the ways in which we think about music engagement, music education, and inquiry in music education” (Barrett and Stauffer 2009, p. 1). To situate how narrative inquiry can ...
