Emphasis is on the ways in which music teaching and learning can be used to re-dress and eliminate inequalities brought about through ideologies of domination by creating an open-ness to musical experience that promotes access to all. (And, thus by extension, also the ways in which music teaching and learning have not been transformative in the past). Gender is approached, not as male or female, but as a continuum of possibilities implicated by sexualities and sustained by socially and historically constructed notions of masculinity and femininity that interact in complex, often competing and contradictory ways. Written with a wide variety of methodological (historical, ethnographic, philosophical, sociological) approaches and multi-disciplinary orientations, GEMS features articles, pedagogical spotlights and book reviews, as well as discussions and debates that explore and critique everyday life of actual, virtual, and historical music and education communities.</p><p><strong>Candidates for the GEMS Journal Editor will be accepted until APRIL 1, 2015.

Music teaching and learning need not be restricted to traditional school settings, and may be considered to include any level of instruction, including professional studies in musicology, performance, theory, for example, as well as innovative or unique ideas, practices, and/or settings reflecting different musical traditions and approaches.</li> <LI><b>Pedagogical Spotlights</b> Shorter, more informal articles (1000 - 3000 words) that identify an issue requiring further study or that illustrate a particular pedagogical application having the potential to re-dress inequalities of current educational practices. In the case of the latter, articles should provide a general description of the pedagogical application that is sufficiently detailed to allow others to adapt it to their own teaching situation, as well as a statement of the guiding principle behind the application (as appropriate).</li> <LI><b>Reviews</b> Short articles (800 - 1000 words) reviewing a book, website, media, music composition and/or performance, software application, or other resources relevant to gender/sexuality/social change and music in an educational/community context. </li> <LI><b>
