Notes from the Editor


Welcome to the 2015 issue of Research and Issues in Music Education (RIME). It’s been two years since our last issue, but I think our present offerings are well worth the wait. In this issue, Virginia Wayman Davis of the University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley explores music teachers’ personal listening choices. Cynthia Wagoner of East Carolina University presents an investigation of social justice issues and music education in the post 9/11 United States. Debbie Rohwer of the University of North Texas describes the process of music learning and the perceptions of members in a school-based middle school handbell setting. And Joshua Palkki of California State University, Long Beach chronicles the social and vocal experiences of two Latina high school choir students.
