About ISME Research Commission

A milestone for research based understandings of life’s musical journey: The 50th anniversary of the ISME Research Commission. The ISME Research Commission has sought to a) examine through research important issues facing music education worldwide; b) develop, refine and demonstrate a range of research approaches, methods and techniques for critically examining issues in music education; c) provide a forum for the communication, critical analysis, and dissemination of research innovations in music education; and d) deepen and develop the research knowledge base for practitioners, policy makers, and researchers in music education. In Dubai we will celebrate 50 years of these endeavors at the 27th ISME Research Commission Pre-Conference Seminar with research presentations, discussions, and a look back on our history in an effort to deepen and develop the research knowledge base of music education.
