We're delighted to be bringing back our 'How To Research' series for 2021, these workshops are perfect for dissertation students, while open to everyone.  In the second workshop of the series, Academic Dean, Tony Harris will be discussing how to research music education.

Tony's contribution to music education recently got him the Professor title, most notably due to his extensive research on the composer Cornelius Cardew and his influence on music in education, society and politics. Tony completed his Ph.D. on Cornelius Cardew at Birmingham Conservatoire in 2011; his research was successively included in a book, The Legacy of Cornelius Cardew, published in 2013, quickly become a seminal text on the composer, as including concepts and ideas that have been adopted by many music educators across the world. The book is available for loan from the ICMP library.

Other publications include five composition text-books for schools and a research project exploring music and children with special educational needs.

During the Zoom meeting, you'll be able to ask questions via the chat bar. All our How To Research sessions will be recorded and available 24 hours after each event.
