Research profile

The Reid School of Music offers an exciting research environment that combines the theory, history, composition and practice of music with the scientific study of sound. We engage with a broad range of genres and traditions, including classical and popular music, Western and non-Western music, professional and amateur music making and music for screen.

Our research is highly interdisciplinary, with centres and groups spanning other Colleges and Departments within the University of Edinburgh, from Physics and Neuroscience to Informatics, the Humanities, Divinity and the Social Sciences.

We have a large community of postgraduate students undertaking independent research in music.

Our staff have a wide range of research interests, engaging in research clustered around four main themes: Music, Sound and Technology, including musical acoustics and organology; Musical Practice, including composition (electroacoustic, algorithmic, computer music and music for screen), and historical and contemporary performance research; Music and the Human Sciences, including music psychology and cognition, and music in the community; Music and Social Institutions, including 19th and 20th century musicology, popular music, and music sociology;
