Article in Research Studies in Music Education

A new article in Research Studies in Music Education is out this month, in which Stephanie Pitts reports on the work carried out with the Music in the Round outreach project, Music Box, in three Sheffield primary schools last year.   The research used observation, questionnaires and focus groups to explore the children’s recollections of meeting professional musicians and engaging in musical activities – and the paper includes some great children’s drawings of musicians (or in one confused case, a magician!) inspired by their experiences.  See the paper online here (subscription needed): http://rsm.sagepub.com/ and check out the journal’s open access research round up too.
