MA Voice Pedagogy student Emily Bender to present at upcoming ISME World Conference

Monday 11th March 2024

It gives us great pleasure to report that MA Voice Pedagogy student Emily Bender has had an individual paper accepted for presentation at the upcoming 36th ISME (International Symposium on Music Education) World Conference, in addition to delivering a joint presentation at the same event. The conference will take place at The University of the Arts Helsinki in Helsinki, Finland from 28th July – 2nd August 2024, and this year’s theme is ‘Advocacy for Sustainability in Music Education’.

Emily’s individual paper – Transformative Teaching: Decolonizing the Voice Studio though Building Context, Relationship, Skills and Creativity – assesses the value of the Transformative Teaching Model (TTM) as a guide for teachers who want to be part of changing pedagogical practice to equalise all musics.

Congratulations, Emily!
