The Music Research Division

The Research Division aims to contribute hrough research to music education in the conservatoire and beyond, to the practices of makers and players and to scholarship and society.

The research division works from the conviction that:

  • Music practice benefits from a regular exchange of new ideas
  • Musical craftsmanship deserves a more substantial representation in education, in cultural debates, in literature and media.
  • Practicing musicians should be able to act persuasively – in playing, but also in speaking or writing – as representatives of their discipline.
  • Practicing musicians can have an enriching influence on the academic discourse.
