Caroline joined the University of York in 2019 as a Lecturer in Music Education, having previously held lectureships at the University of Hull, the University of Derby, and the University of Roehampton. She has published in various leading peer-reviewed journals in music education and psychology, as well as guest-editing a special issue of Empirical Musicology Review and co-editing a volume on music and empathy research for Routledge with Dr Elaine King.
Caroline’s research interests include technology and music learning; music and wellbeing; equality, diversity, and inclusion in music education; and music and empathy. She is currently PI on two research projects. The CoMusicate project (funded by UKRI via Closing the Gap) works with people with lived experience of severe mental illness to design and evaluate some new technology that will support social and creative interaction through music and sound. Meanwhile, the SMILE research project (funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation and SEMPRE) aims to develop and evaluate a new online resource for staff in special schools to help to address the current equality gap in music provision for disabled pupils.
Beyond the university, Caroline has a strong commitment to musical inclusion, and works with organisations such as Live Music Now, Music in Hospitals and Care, The Amber Trust, and Sounds of Intent to bring more music-making and music learning opportunities to disabled children and young people.
Caroline’s research interests span music psychology and music education. Recent projects include:
