Music students early in their studies are usually lacking three primary skills in researching music. 1) Knowing where to look, 2) Understanding what they find, and 3) Adopting an order/process of research that is efficient and robust.
This two-part workshop addresses all three skills in a practical approach. Beginning with a general area for research, students will utilize a step by step approach narrowing their topic as they progress through increasingly specific resources. The student will come away with a usable topic, a preliminary bibliography to continue their research, and a set of strategies to encourage efficient research methodology in all their subsequent coursework.
This workshop allows each student to have a unique topic and so is excellent for writing intensive projects and courses.
