Come and join the discussion
Music is a broad and exciting subject area, constantly evolving and pushing at the boundaries between everyday life and art. Since 1838, the Reid School of Music has been a world leader in research into music and its place in our lives.
Today, it’s home to a diverse academic community with research interests in the fields of musicology, music technology, composition, acoustics, creative practice, music psychology, and much more besides. Our various research seminar series provide focal points for learning, discussion and exchange on the latest research, whether scholarly or artistic, theoretical or applied.
A vital resource for our undergraduate and postgraduate communities, these seminar series are open to all.
