This article argues that music education researchers need not define nor divide themselves by the types of research they choose to do. They should defend their choices only with respect to how well they address research questions, and not against some abstract set of presumed “nonbelievers.” They need not “take sides,” set up “camps,” or hurl salvos at those whose research pursuits are different from their own, but rather attempt to understand the differences, and respect and value them.
