Teacher/Researcher Partnership project

Teachers have questions, and higher ed faculty have research experience. If you have a question about your classes, music program, or the profession, contact the Research Committee ([email protected]) and we will partner a PMEA member teacher with a researcher with expertise in the area of your question. You can develop a project together, and work together to find answers. Previous projects have involved a general music teacher required to teach classes to a new age level, and a band/string teacher wanting to learn ways student journaling guided her teaching and reflective practice.
