Research areas

Promoting active enquiry into music
Our students benefit from research-led teaching throughout our undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum.

The Conservatorium is the University of Sydney's music hub. Our staff engage in active enquiry into diverse areas of research, including:

  • artistic research (composition, performance-based research)
  • music pedagogy (music education, technology and teaching)
  • music scholarship (musicology, ethnomusicology, music history, music theory, popular music)
  • applied music research (music cognition and music training).
