The Department of Music aims to produce traditional and practice-based research at the forefront of our strength areas that is internationally competitive, has significant social impact, and encourages interdisciplinary collaboration. We demonstrate vibrancy and sustainability through diverse funding streams and dissemination paths in five main areas: performance, composition, education, (ethno)musicology, and technology. These relate to wider themes involving creative media, performance practices across cultures and eras; expressive culture and scholarship stimulating discourse on contemporary society; and education related to cognition and social policy.
There are three core Research areas: Interdisciplinary Research & Creative Practice; Cross-Cultural Research; and Research in Music Education. Cognition, and Society
