Prelude: framing and re-framing the narrative possibilities for music education

Margaret S. Barrett, Sandra L. Stauffer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Other


Stephen Pinker here reminds us of the mutability of human thought, of the ways in which humans might frame an instance or event in a range of ways. In the seven narrative accounts of living music stories in school, university, and community settings, we are invited by the authors and the accompanying commentary writers to consider the conundrums, the incompatibilities, and the puzzlements that underlie the ways we come to understand music education and experience.
