This paper examines the impact of school music education through an academic literature review. The search in specialized databases provided a total of 25 papers published during 2005 - 2016. The analysis revealed two categories in relation to impact: IN, that included those issues within the discipline, and OUT, with implications beyond it. Many of the analysed publications considered the impact based on topics that go beyond what strictly school music education is, including personal, intellectual and/or social aspects. This study presents a conceptualization of impact on music education that surpasses the measurable aspects associated with educational policy reforms.
