Dr Christopher Dalladay
Cass School of Education and Communities
I completed my PhD studies in 2015 on 'Music teachers' biographies, their understanding of musicality and its implications for secondary music education'.
I am now exploring aspects drawn from the PhD - music teacher biography, musicianship in the classroom, ideology and practice; and also issues related to the use of learning time in schools and issues related to transitions in music education - KS3/4 and KS4/5.
