Reviews

Stories, metaphors, analogies and quotes from a variety of sources make the text interesting and bring a welcome lightness to this philosophical work in a way not often found in literature of this disciplinary area. * Journal of Popular Music Education * While the impact of [Allsup's] book on our practice cannot yet be predicted, his re-envisioning of music educators as public intellectuals who can shape discourse through the class, ethnic, gendered, and generational realities of conventional music education bursts with possibilities and encourages readers to consider their larger responsibilities. * Notes * Allsup's work contributes significantly to music education. It is a twenty-first-century philosophy that puts forward open possibilities that unsettle closures and limitations long present in music education. * Philosophy of Music Education * Remixing the Classroom is a stimulating book and will, I am sure, expand the minds of music educators. It is time to pay heed to Allsup's appeal and embrace the `discomfort of the new'. For as the maxim goes: if the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever. * British Journal of Music Education *
