(p. v) Acknowledgments

The first draft of each chapter in this two-volume handbook was independently reviewed by the Part Editor and at least two additional reviewers, most often other authors from the same part or alternatively drawn from experts in other sections of the handbook or externally. We are grateful to the following external reviewers for their help with the review process: Stephen Baranski, Timothy S. Brophy, Kim Burwell, Jeffrey Bush, Glen Carruthers, Alicia Clair, Ann Clements, Gordon Cox, Susan Davis, Kathryn Deane, Luciana Del-Ben, Ellen Dissanayake, Celia Duffy, Peter Dunbar-Hall, Colin Durrant, Julianne Evoy, Mark Fonder, Lynne Gackle, John Gilbert, Richard Hallam, Steven Hutchinson, Beatriz Ilari, Dan Isbell, Sheri Jaffurs, Nick Jaworski, Andrew Krikun, Alexandra Lamont, Francesca Matthews, Marguerite McCormick, Scott McCoy, Regina Murphy, Channing A. Paluck, Richard Parncutt, Patti Peterson, Charles Plummeridge, Harry Price, Donald Robin, Debbie Rohwer, Gabriel Rusinek, Catherine Schmidt-Jones, John Silantien, Brenda Smith, Kurt D. Squire, Alan Spurgeon, Sandra Stauffer, Theresa Steiner, Cynthia Stephens-Himonides, Lorella Terzi, Ingo Titze, Angela Vogiatzoglou, Janice L. Waldron, Patrice Madura Ward-Steinman, Michael Webb, Janis Weller, Susan Wharton Conkling, Sheila Woodward, and Susan Young.

We take this opportunity to thank the various representatives of Oxford University Press. We are especially grateful to the OUP Commissioning Editor, Suzanne Ryan for her enthusiasm in accepting our proposal and for steering us in the right direction as we compiled this volume.

Very special thanks should be attributed to the Part Editors, who enthusiastically took responsibility for their specialist area of the handbook. We are grateful for their hard work ensuring that each section fits the mission of the handbook, that is, to update and redefine music education internationally. Special thanks also to each of the 156 authors who represent 24 nationalities. Each deserves praise for his or her commitment to the project and the quality of their work.

Now that all of the authors can see their chapters in the context of the whole volume, we hope that they will agree that our journey together has been worthwhile. We hope also, that our readers enjoy the fruits of our labor.
