(p.3) 1 Introduction
Praxial Music Education

David J. Elliott

Oxford University Press

This book is a collection of critically reflective essays on the praxial philosophy of music and music education. The contributors are an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars who believe that critical thinking, constructive debate, and dialogues are the lifeblood of music education. By means of their essays, they also speak for those who believe that future music teachers must learn to think for themselves and develop their own philosophies based on their own careful reflections. One of the goals of this book is to contribute to music education philosophy generally and the literature of praxialism in music education specifically. The contributors evaluate the praxial philosophy, pro and con, from the viewpoint of their area(s) of interest and expertise such as philosophical foundations, musical performance, music listening, early childhood education in music, multiculturalism in music education, and curriculum development and offer criticisms.

Keywords:   music education, praxial philosophy, praxialism, music, early childhood education, music listening, multiculturalism, curriculum development, musical performance
