Popular music education (PME) has emerged recently as a discrete field from within music education and popular music studies. Intersecting with research and practice in music industry, music technology, wellbeing, music education, popular music studies, and communication studies, PME scholarship has ‘come of age’. Challenges and responsibilities facing the sector include maintaining pace with the development of musics beyond the school and academy, reconciling commercial and social aspirations of institutions, practitioners, faculty and students, and dealing with competing agendas and authenticities regarding careers, educational ideologies, and social justice and democracy. Popular music education can seem emancipatory and limiting, straightforward and notoriously complex. It belongs to the street, the academy, the school, the community and the individual.
