The School of Music is a leading centre for research. We create and study new music, yet we also embrace the music of the past.
Through the areas of performance, composition, musicology, and music technology, we take a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach, in research that aims to be at the vanguard of music’s evolution.
Situated within Australia’s first purpose-built music school facility, our staff engage in research with colleagues from across the University in disciplines including medicine, science, computing, and collection management.
Our research aims to engage with music as it is heard and played today, through associations with the leading arts bodies in Canberra, across the nation, and beyond.
