Welcome to the Music Education Research Portal

June 27, 2014 – 12:30 pm

The Guidonian Hand, a medieval mnemonic device used to teach singing. University of Pennsylvania, Rare Book and Manuscript Library, MS Codex 1248.

The purpose of this research portal is to facilitate access by master’s and doctoral students to informational resources in the field of music teaching and learning, including pedagogy, philosophy, psychology, cognition, sociology, therapy, and wellness. It combines the features of a link library, a bibliography, a search engine, an electronic-resource database, a news gatherer, and provides for comment and feedback. IT IS CURRENTLY (JUNE-AUGUST 2014) UNDERGOING REPAIR AND RECONSTRUCTION.

The selected music education resources included or referenced in the portal are drawn from:

  • subscribed electronic database indexes, digitized libraries, and online journals
  • public or open-access sites located on the Internet, such as research centers, conferences, organizations, catalogs of other libraries, and lists of links– “webliographies”– developed by others
  • physical book, journal, and audio/video collections of GMU Libraries

Students and faculty who visit here are encouraged to send me questions and comments, ratings/opinions on resources, suggestions for additional materials, and feedback on the portal’s “usability.” YOUR remarks and advice will improve and add value to this portal.
