Music Education in the Digital Age (MEDA) Project Launches Survey

Rena UpitisThe Music Education in the Digital Age (MEDA) Project, under the direction of Queen's University (Dr. Rena Upitis), in collaboration with Concordia University and The Royal Conservatory, just launched what promises to be the largest survey to date of students, teachers, and parents involved in studio music instruction for instrument and voice.

In 2014, the researchers conducted a national survey of students, teachers, and parents involved in The Royal Conservatory’s examination system. Now they are expanding their research to look at students involved in conservatories and music schools in Canada, the UK (http://ca.abrsm.org/en/about-abrsm/news-articles-and-comment/latest-news/article/calling-all-music-teachers-students-and-parents/632/), Ireland, the United States, and Australia! The surveys are designed to improve understanding of the experiences associated with studio instruction. The  results will be shared widely through papers, conferences, the project's website (www.musictoolsuite.ca), Facebook, and Twitter.

The researchers would appreciate it if students, teachers, and parents currently involved in studio music lessons would complete the survey by December 18.
