Rachel Griffiths

In recent months, we have been fortunate enough to meet Rachel Griffiths, and hear about her work as a Music Education Researcher.

She has recently finished a thesis about ‘The use of technology in enabling music education access and participation for SEN/D students’ . We have found this very interesting and feel that we should share it.

    Hi, I’m Rachel. I’m currently studying for an MA in Music Education at the University of York and I'm also a private woodwind teacher. On this course I started researching into accessible instrument technology - adapted or electronic instruments. This area interested me as I am a huge believer in equal access to music, and a bit of a tech nerd with a background as a web developer. This led me to be involved with Creative United in an Accessible Instrument Hackathon over summer, and work with OHMI on assessing school pupils for adapted instruments.

    I will be continuing this research at York for a PhD from October, with a focus on how teacher training material can help remove barriers to the use of accessible instruments. If you teach music and have disabled pupils, or you provide accessible instruments and/or training on their use to schools, please take the relevant questionnaire below - the results will be used in my dissertation and inform the direction of my doctoral study.

This is a presentation by TiME people on Women in Music Technology. It was the acclaimed session in the Music Teacher Magazine "Music Technology in Education" conference Series.

TiME Development Director Kate Rounding introduced Singer, Producer Rita Campbell, Sound Engineer and Accessible Instrument Developer Amy Dickson and leading Mastering Engineer Katie Tavini. Lots of great ideas.

This is the first of many such videos from TiME.
