Jeanne Bamberger tribute issue of VRME now available. Message from the editors, S. Alex Ruthman and Gena R. Greher:
At the 2010 meeting of the Creativity SRIG, we were treated to a keynote presentation by eminent music cognition scholar Jeanne Bamberger. For over 40 years, her research and scholarship in the fields of music cognition, music learning, intuition and creativity has had, and continues to have, a profound international impact within and beyond music-related fields.
After her presentation, the Creativity SRIG announced a call for submissions to a special tribute issue of Visions of Research in Music Education (VRME) in honor of Jeanne’s work and career. We are thrilled to announce the publication of that tribute issue as Volume 20 of Visions of Research in Music Education .
