Narrative inquiry is evolving in music education and in the social sciences. In some respects, scholars engaged in narrative in music education have grown, collectively, beyond the turns described in the first chapter and have metamorphosed into a community of narrative inquirers. Narrative has been used in music education dissertations and other studies. Two international conferences addressing Narrative Inquiry in Music Education have been held. Narrative pieces have been published in the profession's research journals and in this book. Narrative studies are in progress as we write and read these words. Music education researchers who use narrative have found resonance with colleagues in other disciplines, as well as spaces and places where narrative can flourish (Pinnegar&Daynes, 2007).
