One of the main aims of this journal, especially initially, is iteratively to define the parameters of the field and disciplines of its readership and contributors (especially with regard to other journals in popular music, and music education), this being an emerging field of scholarship and practice. The other principal aim is to disseminate excellent critique and other forms of scholarship (e.g. phenomenological) in and related to the field. The journal aims to have an inclusive, global reach. 'Education' and 'popular music' are terms that we are glad to see stretched and problematized through rigorous examination from multiple international perspectives.

Notes for Contributors Download


The Journal of Popular Music Education seeks to define, delimit, debunk, disseminate, and disrupt practice and discourse in and around popular music education. Popular music education takes place at the intersections of identity realization, learning, teaching, enculturation, entrepreneurship, creativity, a global multimedia industry, and innumerable instances of music making as leisure. Through drawing together diverse, rigorous scholarship concerning learning in, through and about popular music worldwide, JPME seeks to identify, probe and problematize key issues in this vibrant, evolving field. Scholarship from and across all relevant research methods and disciplines is welcome.

Areas for consideration could include but should not be limited to: performance, recording, production, songwriting, composition, technology, listening, movement, socializing, identity, travel, social classification and stratification, marketing, politics, religion, nationalism, fashion, multi-arts and cross-cultural perspectives.

Please email manuscripts of between 6,000 and 8,000 words (double-spaced, Times New Roman, font size 12) for the attention of editors Gareth Dylan Smith and Bryan Powell to jpmejournal@gmail.com.
