As music teachers, we are committed to the success of our students in their pursuit of musical excellence. Research in music pedagogy plays an integral role in the refinement and development of approaches to teaching and learning. To enable us to continue to transform experiences of music-making for ourselves and our students, research provides knowledge and understanding of the various aspects that are found in music studios. It is the aim of the Research Committee to promote and encourage scholarly work in music pedagogy and provide a forum for the dissemination of research on music teaching and learning.
This research component of our association is an exciting addition to our mission and the field of music education research. Through the creation of this Research Committee, the CFMTA is providing a model of leadership and collaboration for registered music teachers associations.
