Featuring chapters by the world's foremost scholars in music education and cognition, this handbook is a convenient collection of current research on music teaching and learning. This comprehensive work includes sections on arts advocacy, music and medicine, teacher education, and studio instruction, among other subjects, making it an essential reference for music education programs. The original Handbook of Research on Music Teaching and Learning, published in 1992 with the sponsorship of the Music Educators National Conference (MENC), was hailed as "a welcome addition to the literature on music education because it serves to provide definition and unity to a broad and complex field" (Choice). This new companion volume, again with the sponsorship of MENC, explores the significant changes in music and arts education that have taken place in the last decade. Notably, several chapters now incorporate insights from other fields to shed light on multi-cultural music education, gender issues in music education, and non-musical outcomes of music education. Other chapters offer practical information on maintaining musicians' health, training music teachers, and evaluating music education programs. Philosophical issues, such as musical cognition, the philosophy of research theory, curriculum, and educating musically, are also explored in relationship to policy issues. In addition to surveying the literature, each chapter considers the significance of the research and provides suggestions for future study.
Covering a broad range of topics and addressing the issues of music education at all age levels, from early childhood to motivation and self-regulation, this handbook is an invaluable resource for music teachers, researchers, and scholars.

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.
