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
