Background

Bio

Professor Huib Schippers was the founding Director of Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre (2003-2015). Performance training in sitar music led to an interest in global music education and action-research projects in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. He established and led the first World Music School in Amsterdam (1990) and later was the principal driver behind the World Music & Dance Centre in Rotterdam (2006). He has taught and lectured across the world, and published extensively on learning and teaching for over 20 years, most notably in his  Oxford University Press publication ‘Facing the music: shaping music education from a global perspective’ (2010). His current research interest is sustainability, approached from the perspective of 'musical ecosystems' that he developed as part of an international research collaboration, the results of which will be published by Oxford University Press in 2016.
