“The chapters of the MENC Handbook of Research Methodologies provide an excellent overview of various practices in the music education research community and solid ground for constructing methodological frameworks. This book is certain to become an essential reference text for music education researchers, a standard for research courses, and a well-used volume in individual and institutional libraries.”–Sandra L. Stauffer, Arizona State University
“Where was this text when my cohorts were in graduate school? This helpful and accessible handbook adds needed muscle to the body of music education research. It belongs in every scholar’s library and every graduate curriculum. Considering the trend toward involving our best undergraduates in collaborative research, future leaders in our field now have an opportunity to acquire the kinds of early empirical grounding that only leaders like Reimer, Radocy, Colwell, Asmus, Richardson, Heller, and Jorgensen can provide.”–Timothy Gerber, Professor of Music, The Ohio State University
