About Us


Our vision is to highlight cutting edge, innovative, research-informed, and practice-based ideas for how music can be taught effectively through the online context.

About the conference

Teaching Music Online in Higher Education is an ONLINE research-informed conference on the practice of teaching music online at the Higher Ed/ tertiary levels. We have combined our conference with MET (UK). Together, this conference connects researchers and practioners interested in music education technology at the tertiary level.

We seek to address aligned topics and challenges faced by teachers, students and school leaders. Researchers, practitioners, and graduate students interested, and/or engaged in how to teach or perform music online, and best practices for teaching and performing music online are invited to join in the conversations and/or present their research in the area. Our delegates come from across the globe to gather together and share their ideas and vision for creating effective and meaningful online music learning and performance for students.

Our virtual conference is set to provide participants from all around the globe to take in keynote speakers via live stream (or recording), academic presentations, live stream discussions, and live stream workshops. The conference takes place across 48 hours to support our global attendees with live stream keynotes at a time that is manageable for Australia, Canada/US and Europe.

Teaching Music Online in Higher Ed helps support the sharing of practical, research-informed ideas for teaching music online.
