TLU Department of Music peer reviewed international CFMAE Journal 7/1 2015 Spring issue (ISSN 2228-0715, listed in EBSCO Discovery and soon also in RILM as full text) has been now introduced at the CFMAE-MERYC conference.



The Changing Face of Music and Art Education is a peer-reviewed journal with an international editorial board. Its aim is to issue research in the field of music and art education and its related interdisciplinary fields. As a developing journal, we are delighted to announce the first issue of the seventh volume 2015.

The topics of this issue are composed around the main theme ”Playful Sounds – Personhood” of the joint conference CFMAE-MERYC2015, 05.-09.05.2015, at Tallinn University and grouped in different thematic sections. In Music and Education: Early childhood – development, abilities, play, and well-being, E-learning and music education technology, and An interdisciplinary book, project and concert report. In Art and Education: Playful attitude towards design. As playful means also variety, colors, this issue matured differently. It is the first time we issue the experiences of reflective practitioners together with scientific studies.

CFMAE is dedicated to serving an international readership with diverse needs, interests, and concerns addressing the main idea, that music and art education is constantly in flow, it’s changing face can be traced back in history (yesterday), shape the contemporary development (today) and will affect the future (tomorrow). The journal is hosted by Tallinn University Institute of Fine Arts Department of Music and the 2015 volumes are issued in collaboration with EuNetMERYC European Network Music Educators and Researcher of Young Children.

The editors thank all contributors, evaluators and supporters.
