Praxis is the electronic journal of the Sam Houston State University Center for Music Education. The purpose of the journal is to complement the mission of the Center for Music Education by:

  • Developing and disseminating resources for practicing music educators
  • Stimulating thought, research, and conversation for the benefit of the profession
  • Providing an avenue for exploring a diverse range of issues, ideas, and topics that are relevant to the practice of music education and its relationship to art, teaching, performance, and culture.

The electronic format offers the opportunity to incorporate a variety of media and materials that would not be available in a printed version. Issues are published in semiannual Spring and Fall editions.

Brian Gibbs, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief, has extensive teaching experience in both higher education and secondary education. His research focuses on pedagogy for musical expression.
