Investigating musical identities

You are invited to take part in a research project about musical identities. In particular, we are interested in finding out how contemporary socio-cultural factors influence the development of musical identities in adults, and the impact this has on musical engagement. The study is being conducted by Dr Amanda Krause (James Cook University) and Dr Melissa Forbes (University of Southern Queensland).
