Music Transitions and Futures

A one-day conference focusing on progression routes for students transitioning from secondary to tertiary music education.

Date/Time: 25 January 2018, 14.00

Venue: The Boiler House, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 7RU

The International Centre for Music Studies at Newcastle University welcomes participants who share our interest in the evolving progression routes between secondary and tertiary music education. This one-day event will encourage consideration and debate on issues surrounding altered progression routes for students of music as a result of factors such as the introduction of the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) in addition to other factors affecting students’ decision-making and opportunities in relation to progressing from secondary music education into studying music at Higher Education. In addition to the keynote addresses, the day will include panel discussions, with contributions from representatives drawn from a wide cross-section of the music education field, alongside opportunities for dialogue and debate. We hope to encourage a debate (including world café table discussions) with all delegates that focuses upon both the challenges and future possibilities for collective action for music and its utility in HE.

The event is free and refreshments will be provided but as space will be limited, early booking is advised.
