Call for Research Proposals. Deadline Approaches


The primary aim of this session is to provide a blind peer-reviewed research forum for current higher education / tertiary level teachers, performers, graduate students, Teaching Assistants and professors to present experimental, action, qualitative, or quantitative research or theories about trumpet performance and / or pedagogy.

Researchers should submit a 500-word abstract that outlines their work to be considered for a 15-20 minute oral presentation. Research work may be developed from graduate or dissertation work, or recently published material. This is not a lecture-recital or master-class session.

Presenters will be given the opportunity to share their work with interested participants over the course of the 2-hour session. Typically only 5-6 of the best proposals received will be accepted. Presenters will benefit from sharing their work with others in the room, informally, and professionally have access to future collaboration nationally and internationally. Presenters sharing their work may choose to deliver handouts and summaries of their work to the audience on the day. Successful proposal abstracts will be published in the program.

Submissions should be submitted electronically to the Research Room Chair attached to an email, titled “ITG Research Room Proposal” in the following manner:
