Major new survey on the teaching and learning of Irish traditional music

Clare musician and concertina master Jack Talty, a doctoral student at the Irish World Academy at the University of Limerick is undertaking a major new survey as part of his PhD.

The survey will assist research on the teaching and learning of Irish traditional music in Irish higher education (referred to as "third-level education" throughout the survey).

If you take part you will be asked for your responses to a number of questions and statements. You will not be asked to disclose your identity at any stage. 

The research explores how Irish traditional music is taught and learned in Irish universities and institutes of technology. The term 'Irish traditional music' is used throughout this survey, but song and dance studies are also relevant to the research. The research began in 2012 and is due for completion in 2017. The research supervisor is Dr. Aileen Dillane, a musician, ethnomusicologist, and music lecturer at the Irish World Academy. This research project has been supported by the Irish Research Council's Government of Ireland Postgraduate Award.

This survey is designed to gather opinions and perspectives from individuals such as performers, teachers, students, enthusiasts, etc, of Irish traditional music, on the teaching and learning of Irish traditional music in Irish third-level education.

What happens if you agree to take part?

The survey will take approximately 7-8 minutes to complete, and it asks you about your opinions on the topic of Irish traditional music in Irish third-level education. There are no right or wrong answers and your opinions and experience are all that is required.

All information will be kept strictly confidential and your identity as a participant will remain anonymous. Data will be encrypted and securely stored on a password-protected external hard-drive. The anonymised data will be used in my PhD thesis, and potentially, in subsequent publications.
