Although musicians have always had portfolio careers, the discourse in conservatoires around training musicians specifically for portfolio careers is relatively new. This is partly because of increasing opportunities in the workplace for entrepreneurial and multi-faceted musicians and partly -- in the UK at least -- because of educational policy…

Daniel, Ryan; Bowden, Julia – British Journal of Music Education, 2013
While many piano students successfully progress beyond beginner status to reach what is commonly referred to as the intermediate stage, there is minimal research specific to this area of practice.

Ashley, Martin R. – British Journal of Music Education, 2013
Work such as that of John Cooksey on boys' changing voices has influenced choral practice in the USA and in certain UK youth choirs, but has hitherto had little impact in UK schools where many teachers continue to believe that boys' voices "break". Different practices are found across the independent and maintained sectors of secondary…

Gaunt, Helena – British Journal of Music Education, 2011
The power of one-to-one tuition in Higher Music Education is evidenced by its continuing place at the heart of conservatoire education.
