Worldwide Universities Network research trip

Dr Stephanie Pitts was awarded £770 by the Worldwide Universities Network to visit the music and education departments of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She spent a week there in November, giving research seminars, meeting staff and students, and having discussions about US music education and musical life with Professor Liora Bresler and Professor Gary McPherson. The visit helped to recruit participants for Stephanie’s ongoing research into musical life histories.
