Abstract and Keywords

Over the past few years, restorative justice and transformative justice have taken on greater research importance in the scholarly community. These two forms of social justice offer ways of dealing with harms that result from conflict. The claim of this chapter is that these two types of justice can be used to structure and shape pedagogy in music education. Research suggests that choral singing within a prison context and the particular pedagogies employed therein can be shaped positively through restorative and transformative justice. Prison choir performances humanize prisoners and bring greater public awareness to their lives. If one accepts the premise that the use of restorative and transformative justice in musical teaching and learning enacts forms of healing, then their application has great potential to create encouraging learning environments and provide tools for music teachers to support the social needs of their learning communities.

Keywords: restorative justice, transformative justice, prisons, learning environments, social needs
