This article provides a brief overview of extant scholarly songwriting literature as well as accounting for the broader research into creativity, primarily from psychology and sociology. It outlines work from popular music studies that focuses on creativity before zooming in closer to studies directly addressing songwriting. Combining this research tradition with the wealth of primarily anecdotal, non-academic material about songwriting, this article then sets out an autoethnographic account of the author’s own development as a teacher of songwriting with reference to how my scholarly and musical work has informed the development of my own teaching of songwriting.

  • The main aims of Journal of Popular Music Education, especially initially, will be iteratively to define the parameters of the field and disciplines of its readership and contributors (especially with regard to other journals in popular music and music education), this being an emerging field of scholarship and practice. The other principal aim will be to disseminate excellent critique and other forms of scholarship (e.g. phenomenological) in and related to the field. The journal will have an inclusive, global reach. 'Education' and 'popular music' are terms that we expect to be stretched and problematized through rigorous examination from multiple international perspectives.
