The 8th International Conference for Research in Music Education

April 2-6, 2013

Call for Papers - Deadline 31 October 2012

The aim of the conference is to gather together researchers, teachers

all aspects of teaching and learning in music: musical development,
perception and understanding, creativity, learning theory, pedagogy,
curriculum design, informal settings, music for special needs,
technologies, instrumental teaching, teacher education, gender and
culture. Music education is also viewed in the context of arts
education, the whole curriculum and its socio cultural contexts.
