Dr Heidi Partti works as Professor of Music Education at University of the Arts Helsinki, Sibelius Academy. Her research interests are initiated by a need to better understand the surrounding culture of music making, learning, and teaching, so as to help the music education profession adapt and understand the rapid changes transpiring in today’s popular and participatory cultures. Her articles and book chapters on topics such as music-related learning communities, digital technology, peer learning, collective creativity, and the development of music teacher education have been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals.
