This workshop explores intersections between scholarly research and the practice of teaching music, drawing on the diverse viewpoints of scholars active in music education, music psychology, theory, and musicology. Themes of the research presentations include the link between hearing and performance accuracy, the role of sensorimotor translation in vocal production, and improvisation as a pedagogical tool.


Prof. Robert Duke, Director of the Center for Music Learning at the University of Texas at Austin, will be present as a respondent. Prof. Duke’s CIRMMT Distinguished Lecture, “Music learning through multiple lenses,” will take place after the workshop, at 4:30 in Tanna Schulich Hall.
