By day a mild-mannered accountant, by night a roaring jazz pianist and singer. A boogie and stride pianist, Willie ‘The Lion’ McIntyre was a leading figure in the traditional jazz boom in Melbourne after World War II. He sang in a Fats Waller style or shouted the blues, and was a key member of Tony Newstead’s Southside Gang and the Portsea Trio. Together with clarinettist George Tack, he developed a series of comedy sketches in the tradition of Australian vaudeville and was one of the great characters on the Melbourne jazz scene in the 1940s and 1950s. This is the story of a unique figure in the history of Australian jazz who grew up during the Depression, served in a medical unit in World War II and became a great entertainer.

Popular music is a growing presence in education, formal and otherwise, from primary school to postgraduate study. Programmes, courses and modules in popular music studies, popular music performance, songwriting and areas of music technology are becoming commonplace across higher education. Additionally, specialist pop/rock/jazz graded exam syllabi, such as RockSchool and Trinity Rock and Pop, have emerged in recent years, meaning that it is now possible for school leavers in some countries to meet university entry requirements having studied only popular music. In the context of teacher education, classroom teachers and music-specialists alike are becoming increasingly empowered to introduce popular music into their classrooms. At present, research in Popular Music Education lies at the fringes of the fields of music education, ethnomusicology, community music, cultural studies and popular music studies. The Ashgate Research Companion to Popular Music Education is the first book-length publication that brings together a diverse range of scholarship in this emerging field. Perspectives include the historical, sociological, pedagogical, musicological, axiological, reflexive, critical, philosophical and ideological.
