About this book

This volume focuses specifically on narrative inquiry as a means to interrogate research questions in music education, offering music education researchers indispensible information on the use of qualitative research methods, particularly narrative, as appropriate and acceptable means of conducting and reporting research.

This anthology of narrative research work in the fields of music and education builds on and supports the work presented in the editors’ first volume in Narrative Inquiry in Music Education: Troubling Certainty (Barrett & Stauffer, 2009, Springer). The first volume provides a context for undertaking narrative inquiry in music education, as well as exemplars of narrative inquiry in music education and commentary from key international voices in the fields of narrative inquiry and music education respectively. 

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Narrative Soundings takes the reader on a highly worthwhile journey across that fertile ground: through the philosophical underpinnings of the discipline; via numerous research examples … and on to narrative enquirers’ reflections on the research process. Its audience will be broad and, as a satisfied traveller, I recommend the book wholeheartedly.” (David Baker, British Journal of Music Education, Vol. 30 (2), 2013)
