London Branch Evening Meeting

 

DO PERFORMANCE MUSICIANS NEED ACOUSTIC EDUCATION ?

a presentation by Luis Gomez-Agustina,

School of Built Environment and Architecture, London South Bank University

 

Wednesday 18 October 2017 at 6 pm

 

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, WSP House, 70 Chancery Lane, London, WC2A 1AF

 

In music, acoustics can be considered as the underlying phenomenon and vehicle of music production, performance and composition. Performance musicians around the world (and specifically in the UK) complete their extensive musical training without basic understanding of the fundamental acoustics concepts behind their practice, making their instruction arguably incomplete.

This talk will discuss the findings of a novel study which explored and evaluated the perceived value of, suitability and attitudes towards the introduction of basic acoustics education in performance music curriculum in UK higher education.

It is aimed that the findings and insights of this study will serve to bring the knowledge gap to the attention of the relevant education field and influence change in the curriculum.

You can find out more about this research and participate in an online questionnaire by reading the latest post on the IOA Blog  http://www.ioa.org.uk/acoustics-and-music-forgotten-link
