Popular music education (PME) is a fast-developing field of study in terms of educational programmes and activities, but relatively few relevant publications are available featuring, for example, case studies of best practice, or relevant theoretical considerations; this volume attempts to provide both, building on such pioneering publications as the special issue of the Journal of Popular Music Studies on popular music education (Oehler & Hanley, 2009), Bridging the Gap: Popular Music and Music Education (Rodriguez, 2004) (both of which focus largely on the US) and the special issue of IASPM Journal on popular music in education (Green et al., 2015). In 2015, the Journal of Music Technology and Education also published a special issue (Smith & Powell, 2015), on technology and performance in popular music education. The volume you are reading complements and further develops this and other existing PME scholarship as it relates to both critical and musical theories and practices.
