Ivaldi, Antonia – British Journal of Music Education, 2019
Research on teachers' assessments of students' playing within music lessons has mainly focused on verbal (spoken) evaluations of their learning.

Latukefu, Lotte; Ginsborg, Jane – British Journal of Music Education, 2019

During the period 2012 to 2014, I assessed 2390 recordings from 239 students. 25 students were graded below C, and thus were defined as poor pitch singers (PPS). However, these students showed varying patterns of mastery within their own portfolios of…

Music notation is intrinsic in the composition and performance of Western art music and also in its analysis and research. The process of writing about music remains underexplored, in particular how excerpts of music notation are selected and arranged in a written text, and how that text describes and contextualises the excerpts. This article…

Bennett, Dawn; Macarthur, Sally; Hope, Cat; Goh, Talisha; Hennekam, Sophie – British Journal of Music Education, 2018
Recent decades have seen gender and feminist research emerge as major fields of enquiry in musicology and to a far lesser extent, music education. While these fields have increased awareness of the issues confronting women and other marginalised groups, the pedagogical practices and curricular design that might support aspiring women composers are…
