Study Day on Music Literacy
Funded by the Institute for Musical Research and the Society for Music Analysis
Saturday 23rd May, Senate House, University of London, Malet Street, WC1E 7HU
Professor Julian Horton (Durham University)
Dr Rebecca Berkley (University of Reading)
The study day provides an opportunity to debate the meaning of music literacy in music education and its associated pedagogies. With the permission of delegates, the anonymous discussion points will form part of the data for the Music Literacy Project: “Questioning the gap: defining a role for the SMA in preparing students for music degrees in higher education today.”
If you are a music teacher (school, college, university, peripatetic, private), then your contribution to the day would be most welcome as well as offering an opportunity for CPD. Music students (sixth form, undergraduate or postgraduate) are also most welcome. We are offering 60 places on a first come, first served basis.
The registration fee is £25 for the day. Light refreshments will be provided in the morning and afternoon. Please bring your own lunch or make use of the many food and drink outlets in the area. The fee will cover expenses associated with the study day.
