Music Learning with Digital Technologies

The next intensive Master course and annual conference of the Nordic Network for Music Education is titled “Music Learning with Digital Technologies”, and will be hosted in Reykjavik by University of Iceland, November 1-5.

For now, this international event is planned as BOTH a face-to-face and online course, so students can participate for variable credits either way (regardless of any pandemic conditions or scheduling issues). 

We look forward to seeing Master students and professors there from the field of music teacher education across all eight Nordic and Baltic countries, and beyond. More details will be posted here by September 2021.

Oral History and Music Education in Africa

It is a pleasure to soon be giving my first presentation for the Pan-African Society for Musical Arts Education (PASMAE, Zambia, July 2021). It is part of a symposium convened by Marie McCarthy called Sounding the Past, Giving Voice to the Future: Oral History and Its Place in Music Education Research. 

My presentation is titled “Oral History Methods for Sustaining Music Heritage in Education” and the other panelists include Benon Kigozi and Milton Wabyona, in addition to Marie McCarthy and myself.
