TU Dublin Conservatoire Research Symposium

TU Dublin Conservatoire's Research Symposium Series celebrates and highlights the research activities at TU Dublin Conservatoire, and provides an opportunity for staff, students, graduates, and visiting scholars and performers to share their research and practice.

We are delighted to welcome Dr Nicole Grimes, University of California, Irvine, as our guest speaker. The symposium also features papers presented by research students on our Master of Philosophy (MPhil), Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Doctor of Music in Performance (DMus) degree programmes.

TU Dublin Conservatoire has developed an active research profile in the areas of musicology, performance, music education and composition. The Conservatoire is also home to the Research Foundation for Music in Ireland. Our staff and students produce a wealth of research outputs that make a significant contribution to our understanding and knowledge of the creative and performing arts.
