Lecture: Facilitating creative and collaborative group work in music
Musical performance is an inherently social activity and musical ensembles offer a powerful context for fostering deep learning in music. Yet, the ability to negotiate and collaborate with one’s co-performers to generate musically cohesive, imaginative and convincing performances does not come easily to everyone. In this session I will explore the importance of peer interdependence in musical learning, focusing on the role of the coach or facilitator in maximising the potential for collaborative and creative music making in groups. The group dynamics, processes and properties found in ensembles of varying types and sizes will be considered within a framework comprising musical, perceptual and social skills that underpin creative music making. Case study examples will demonstrate how, in a range of musical contexts, musical coaches/facilitators might support group members in developing these skills. I will conclude by offering some points of reflection with regard to how facilitators and students might apply the key messages within their own practice.

Seminar: Research methods in practice-based research
In this session I will explore approaches to research for practitioners in the creative arts. Issues relating to planning and presenting research will be considered. I will use specific examples from practice-based research to illustrate how approaches such as case study, action research, survey methods and classroom interventions can be employed in investigations relating to arts education and the wider benefits of engagement in the creative arts.
