About this Unit
In 2017 this unit replaced by 102429 - Music Careers Research. The unit introduces a range of approaches to research used by musicologists and music practitioners. It includes methods which are empirical and theoretical, qualitative and quantitative, ethnographic and analytical, and those emergent in practice-based research, including the idea that practice is research. Students will delineate their own research topics and work on research papers which may involve a creative practical component. Students will propose and report on their research in progress, including its theoretical underpinnings, retrieve and critically evaluate an appropriate literature for their project, and discuss the methods they intend to use for their data collection and analysis. The tutorial will give students an opportunity to present work for feedback and critique.
