Jill Reese presents research at Suncoast Music Education Symposium

Dr. Jill Reese

Assistant Professor Jill Reese of the Fredonia School of Music presented research at the 10th Biennial Suncoast Music Education Symposium on Feb. 6 in Tampa, Fla.

Dr. Reese’s study, co-authored with Fredonia graduate student Kristina Verrico, centered around university musicians who participated in an iPad ensemble, focusing on their experiences.

The symposium was hosted by The Center for Music Education Research (CMER) at the University of South Florida. The purpose of the symposium was to bring together researchers and educators from a broad range of disciplines including psychology, sociology, aging studies, early childhood education and K-12 music to explore music at all in settings (home, community, school) and all age levels. The symposium fosters national and international collaborations on research projects that serve to advance music learning at all stages of the lifespan as well as to advance public understanding of research-to-practice.

Reese’s research was supported by the SUNY-wide Innovative Instruction Technology Grant (IITG) which she received in 2013 for her project, ““iPads for Music Making and Music Teaching.” The study strived to provide the opportunity for undergraduate music education majors to develop their abilities to effectively use technology, helping to scaffold and encourage music creativity and expression in all learners, regardless of age or ability.

Reese has presented research and practical clinics at state, regional, national, and international conferences such as the National Association for Music Education (MENC), the American Educational Research Association (AERA), the Society for Music Teacher Education (SMTE), New Directions in Music Education, International Association for the Study of Child Language, Mountain Lake Colloquium, Early Childhood Music and Movement Association, Gordon Institute for Music Learning and the American Orff-Schulwerk Association.
