(Re)telling Stories of Middle School Student-Led Bands: How One Music Teacher Becomes a Narrative Researcher

  • Stephanie Cronenberg Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey Mason Gross School of the Arts

Abstract

Finely polished prose and clean analysis is abundant in scholarly publications. Yet the academic writing process of drafts, peer review, and revisions that lead to these polished papers is one of trials, triumphs, discovery, and self-doubt rarely revealed to new scholars. This paper is one attempt to demystify the writing as inquiry process through the lens of narrative inquiry. Using three drafts of the same researched text, this paper tells the story of twin journeys: my journey from music teacher to narrative researcher and my middle school music students’ journeys through a student-led curricular unit.
