The Sydney Conservatorium of Music places a high emphasis on its research activity. We have a vibrant and diverse community of staff and students, many of whom enjoy exceptional careers worldwide as both performers and scholars in the finest musical company.
The Master of Music (Music Education) is a two year full-time or four year part-time degree which aims to foster research skill development in areas of music education through research seminars and the writing of a thesis.
The first stream of study is a semester based series of two seminar topics selected from a range of fields relevant to music teaching and learning, including: Foundations of Music Education; Comparative Music Education; Curriculum Design; Technology in Music Education; Multicultural Studies; Sociology of Music Education; Musical Ability and Psychology of Music. A concurrent research stream provides instruction in research methodology and underpins the writing of a thesis, which is the major component of the degree.
