The Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music attracts honours, higher degree students and visiting scholars from all over the world and has an outstanding track record in winning competitive research funding. The School has a long history of collaborative research and work alongside musicians and scholars from Asia, Europe and North and South America.
Research in the School is underpinned by three goals, which are to:
- Study a broad range of music, including Western classical and popular music as well as indigenous, traditional and contemporary music from Australia, Asia and the Middle East
- Compose, perform, record, broadcast and publish new music from Australia and overseas and to bring neglected and forgotten repertory back to life
- Interrogate ideas about music and the role that practice-based research, philosophy and cultural theory have on how we interpret music.
