A volume in Advances in Music Education Research Series Editors Linda K. Thompson, Lee University and Mark Robin Campbell, SUNY at Potsdam Diverse Methodologies in the Study of Music Teaching and Learning brings to the music research community an expansive collection of distinct and varied studies, reflecting a broad range of topics based on the authors' interests and experiences. Methodologies exemplified in the collection offer readers insight into the design and conduct of a whole range of distinctive research approaches: from personal narrative to speech-act theory, from social analysis of institutional practices and traditions to children-as-researchers, from case studies of learning to critical analysis of multiculturalism, and from human development to survey analysis studies. As a set of studies, Diverse Methodologies represents and reflects the music education research community at a truly unique moment. The collection demonstrates the profession's increased motivation, willingness, and desire to expand and enhance the research base and traditions in the study and practice of music education. This volume is an important addition to the libraries of Colleges of Education and Schools of Music, as well as music scholars and educators, researchers, and graduate students who are concerned with advancing both the scope and quality of research in the study of music teaching and learning.
