The aim of the conference is to gather together researchers, teachers and practitioners to share and discuss research that is concerned with all aspects of teaching and learning in music: musical development, perception and understanding, creativity, learning theory, pedagogy, curriculum design, informal settings, music for special needs, technologies, instrumental teaching, teacher education, gender and culture. Music education is also viewed in the context of arts education, the whole curriculum and its sociocultural contexts.

I would like to draw your attention to an event taking place in the School of Music, Humanities, and Media at the University of Huddersfield, UK on the weekend of 14-15 January 2017.
Vocality/Instrumentality is a two-day conference, which will provide a platform for papers, lecture recitals, poster presentations, and performances of various kinds that explore the nature of the relationship between voice and instrument. It will take place in the Creative Arts Building and St Paul's Hall. This event is an activity of the Huddersfield Centre for Performance Research (HuCPeR), and is further supported by the Department of Music and Music Technology, the University of Huddersfield Researcher Development Fund, the Music and Letters Trust, and the Royal Musical Association.
The weekend will feature a keynote lecture by Professor Lydia Goehr (Columbia University New York), and a performance by the British soprano, Juliet Fraser. Please visit our website for all current information: https://vocalityi
The deadline for proposals is 7 October 2016 and the Call for Participation can be found on the website here: https://vocalityinstrume
We would welcome submissions from a variety of different disciplinary perspectives. If you would like to suggest an idea less formally to begin with, please feel free to get in touch (email@example.com).
For students: if you are in the early stages of a research project and would like to make a 10 minute 'Research Statement' presentation rather than a full paper, there will be a session chaired by Professor Daniel Leech-Wilkinson (King's College London) that will provide an opportunity for you to receive feedback on your work and your presentation style. All musical topics are welcome for this particular session - it doesn't need to relate to the theme directly.
Please share this information widely amongst your networks of friends, colleagues, and students. Also, I would be very grateful indeed for any help you can offer in circulating the website on social media, if you use it. The Twitter tag is #vocalityinstrumentality.
