Online Research Coach

In an ever changing professional practice it is important for musicians to be able to react in a flexible and proactive way to developments which occur in society. Research is an important means for shaping your artistic development, and to develop your own signature as a musician. In the Master Programme of the Prince Claus Conservatoire students acquire research skills which enable them to further develop both themselves and the professional practice for which they are being trained. For many students research is something far removed from themselves and quite often they don't see its added value for their own development either.

Online support
The Research Group Lifelong Learning in Music wants to support students with their research by means of an Online Research Coach. What we aim to do with this is offer the student substantial assistance in going through the steps of the research cycle. For each step we briefly discuss the most important steps you should take. Where necessary we will refer you to texts that go deeper into a certain subject or which give you relevant links to specialist literature which you can obtain in a bookshop.

Choice of subjects
We chose a number of subjects based on the general research practice within the arts, especially music research. What kinds of research will Master of Music students come across in their professional practice? Which research instruments are the best match for this? Which forms of data presentation and methods for data analysis? And, not least of all, how do you present your research?

An important factor in the choice of subjects was also the research competences we feel a master of music student should have at the end of his or her studies. In order to graduate, students should be able to do independent research into an aspect of their artistic practice, in which they go through all steps of the research cycle: formulating a research problem (resulting in a research objective and research questions); choosing research instruments; collecting, describing and analysing research data, drawing conclusions, preparing recommendations (also for follow-up research) and writing a report about the research. The research should be replicable for third parties.
