Welcome to the anthology Higher Education as Context for Music Pedagogy Research. This anthology is the second publication in the scholarly series MusPed:Research and concerns the field of higher education. The anthology consists of 14 chapters, arranged under the following themes: (i) instrumental music education, (ii) group-oriented and interdisciplinary music education, and (iii) critical examination of music teacher education programs. Before describing the specific chapters, we will first comment on the title of the anthology. These comments, divided into two parts, are contextually and linguistically oriented towards the growth and development of music educational disciplines in Scandinavian, German, and Anglo-American contexts. The first part is titled “Higher Education as Context” and concerns both higher music education and music teacher education. The second part has the title “Music Pedagogy Research”, and builds on the perspectives of Bildung and Didaktik in German/Scandinavian fields within Musikpädagogische Forschung/ musikkpedagogisk forskning.
