This literature review defines the field of micropolitics in education, presents empirical studies of micropolitics from both general education and teacher education research, and connects micropolitics research to music teacher education research. Suggestions for music teacher education include: (a) introducing policy in preservice education; (b) future studies of the micropolitical landscape of schools; (c) future studies on the attainment of micropolitcal literacy for new teachers; and (d) continued investigations of school reform, school climate, and school change as they relate to music teacher education.
