Research

research overview

  • Dr. Miranda's primary research area is investigating the implications of child development theory as it may inform teaching and learning in the elementary music classroom. In respect to children’s musical development, Dr. Miranda has established a line of research that integrates the early childhood construct “developmentally appropriate practice” with research findings related to children's musical development. Dissemination of this research has the potential to impact elementary music teacher education programs, and associated pedagogical areas that address early group instruction in piano and strings, and parent-child community music programs. Dr. Miranda has developed a related line of research intended to assist teacher licensure candidates “see” the elementary music classroom in multifaceted ways, including individual differences, developmental considerations, and effective teacher practices.
