CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS OF BOOK CHAPTERS RESEARCH TO PRACTICE: A BIENNIAL SERIES A book series published by the Canadian Music Educators Association Volume 3 to be published in 2006: Listen to their voices: Research and practice in early childhood music Edited by Katharine Smithrim

The intent of this book is to explore how our research and practice in early childhood music education reflects the wider world of early childhood education. Specifically, the focus of the book is the relationship between a) current research and practice in the field of early childhood education [ECE] in general, and b) research and practice in music in early childhood. Aspects of music in early childhood to be addressed in this book include: 1. The relationship between early childhood music practice and ECE research and practice. 2. The relationship between early childhood music research and [ECE] research. 3. The critique of current practice in early childhood music with reference to [ECE] research and practice. 4. The critique of current research in early childhood music with reference to [ECE] research. 5. A related topic chosen by the contributor. Contributors may wish to respond to a particular body of research in early childhood (e.g. constructivism), or to the work of a specific researcher (e.g. Lillian Katz), or to a single research article.


Please indicate your interest in participation by March 31st, 2005 to Katharine Smithrim, smithrik@educ.queensu.ca An abstract of the proposed chapter will be required by June 1, 2005. First draft chapters will be required by January 2006.

NEW PUBLICATION: PRAXIAL MUSIC EDUCATION: REFLECTIONS AND DIALOGUES - DAVID ELLIOTT Praxial Music Education: Reflections and Dialogues is a collection of essays by nineteen internationally recognized scholars in music education. Each essay offers critical reflections on a key topic in our field. The starting point of each essay, and the unifying thread of this collection, is the "praxial" philosophy of music education explained in David Elliott's Music Matters: A New Philosophy of Music Education (OUP, 1995). This philosophy posits a socially grounded concept of music and music education. Praxial Music Education is both a critical companion to Music Matters and an independent text on contemporary issues in music education. Topics include: multicultural music education, musical understanding, early childhood music education, music listening, performing, curriculum, community music, general music, and musical creativity. A dedicated web site offers Elliott's reflections on and “dialogues� with authors' ideas. The Praxial web site can be viewed at: http://education.nyu.edu/music/musicmat/ -----------------------------------------------------------------------Book Details: Elliott, David J. (Ed). 2005.
