Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

Whilst my own research focuses on the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, I have supervised a number of research theses which extend both forwards and backwards from this period. These have been principally at MPhil level, but I also currently supervise four doctoral students. Research topics have included both the musical style and canticles of Herbert Howells, the English Symphony before Elgar, the conductor Rudolf Schwarz, the dramatic works of Granville Bantock, the Broadwood Company Archive, and English musicals post 1980. I am happy to talk to potential students about research topics focused on British music and musical culture between 1800 and 1950.
