The Digital Companion to Navigating Music Education Research


This is an eBook for digital download (82 pages + editable resources)

Reading, writing, and conducting research can feel overwhelming. But it can feel especially overwhelming if you’re brand new. This book is the jargon-free field guide, companion, and resource for music education research so that you don’t have to keep emailing your professors.


Research can feel scary and overwhelming if you’re not used to it (and even if you are). There are lots of terms to learn and the learning curve is steep, to say the least. In this book you’ll find help for reading research, designing research, academic writing, and presenting at conferences. This digital companion helps you to understand that reading, writing, and researching doesn’t have to be complicated.

This book also covers skills that come in handy as a researcher, such as the art of skimming articles, pre-writing and organizing tips, editing tips, and tips for presenting all types of sessions at conferences. Music education research-land has lots of acronyms, moving parts, and spaces that can be hard to navigate for those who don’t have much experience. This book contains the advice, tips, and information I’ve learned along the way so that you don’t have to go digging down any rabbit holes to find out what you need to know.

Essentially, this book discusses all things research that you want to know and, more importantly, some things you may be too afraid to ask. Think of this as a helping hand along the way so that you don’t have to keep (a) smiling and nodding or (b) emailing, texting, and calling friends, peers, and professors.
