Symposium: Identity, aspirations and motivation in musicians

Friday 29 January 17:30 – 19:30, Guildhall School

I'm delighted to draw your attention to an upcoming Symposium at the Guildhall School titled Identity, aspirations and motivation in musicians which forms part of the Guildhall ResearchWorks Series. The Symposium will explore key factors affecting musicians' musical and professional identities as they evolve through the critical phase of study in a conservatoire.

Convened by Dr Helena Gaunt (Guildhall School), the presenters include: Dr Don Lebler (Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University), Dr Rineke Smilde (Prince Claus Conservatoire, Groningen/Royal Conservatoire, The Hague) and Rosie Burt-Perkins (Royal College of Music).

For further details, please see the attached the flyer. Abstracts and biographies of all the presenters involved are available on the following link under research events:
