Elliott's groundbreaking 1995 book, Music Matters: A New Philosophy in Music Education, introduced the praxial theory of music education which argues for a socially and artistically grounded concept of music and music education, challenging the field's traditional "absolutist" foundations. Praxial Music Education collects the responses to his thesis from leading scholars in the field. A companion to Music Matters, this book is designed to spark debate and deeper analysis of this influential theory in music education.
