Popular music pedagogy

Popular music pedagogy - alternatively called Rock music pedagogy, Popular music education, or Rock music education - is a recent development in the field of music education consisting of the application of the systematic teaching and learning of rock music and other forms of popular music both inside and outside formal classroom settings.

The origins of popular music pedagogy may be traced to the gradual infusion of rock music into formal schooling since the 1960s, however in recent years it has expanded as a specialization to include the offering of entire degree programs - even graduate degrees - in institutions of higher education. Some notable community institutions, such as Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Seattle's Experience Music Project have also contributed to the development of popular music pedagogy through symposia and educational outreach programs.
