Student Profile(s)

Victoria Williamson

My research unit studies the many roles of music in our wellbeing, in life circumstances that are both everyday (music practice, language learning, sleep) and extraordinary (living with dementia, hospital treatment). With my international collaborators I also work on the psychology of music memory and the evaluation of music performance.

Alison York

Studying a performance-based masters in a university where there are experts in other areas is a great opportunity. Being able to address my performance with new perspectives as a result of cross-specialisation input has brought new ideas and freshness to my own approach as a musician.
