Conclusions and Recommendations
Overall, I found this Fellowship both inspiring and affirming and I am grateful for the opportunities it has provided. Everyone I met with was very generous: willing to discuss and advise on a range of topics and share resources. Additionally, my presentations and performances were well received, providing a strong foundation from which to commence discussions with new colleagues. A global perspective on contemporary music that has resulted from this time will positively influence my future projects for years to come. Already, fellowship findings have informed recent developments in my artistic, research and pedagogical practice:

  • Data gathered for journal article on gender in contemporary music
  • Improvements to my undergraduate courses and postgraduate research programs
  • Methodology for teaching creativity and also sight-reading pedagogy at Bachelor level
  • Influence design of postgraduate music course at UWA to address creativity/artistic output
  • Facilitated invitations to international leaders in contemporary music to Australia to perform, present and teach as guest artists
  • Commence new collaborations with European artists to create new work for percussion
  • Performance of new European repertoire in Australia

 Keywords: Contemporary music, percussion, artistic research, performance practice, university pedagogy
