About me

I am a Staff Tutor and Senior Lecturer in Music at the Open University, where I also tutor on an interdisciplinary module.

I studied Music at Merton College, Oxford, and completed my PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London, on the role and status of music in British Universities c. 1830-1900. I built on this research in my book published with Ashgate in 2013: Music and Academia in Victorian Britain.

In addition to my interests in the history of music education, I have explored topics connected with the status and identity of music in the nineteenth century, including the music profession. My next publication is an edited volume of essays on the subject of the Music Profession in Britain during the long nineteenth century. This grew from a conference I organised in 2015: http://www.open.ac.uk/Arts/music-profession-conference/index.shtml. The book will be published by Routledge in April 2018 https://www.routledge.com/The-Music-Profession-in-Britain-1780-1920-New-Perspectives-on-Status/Golding/p/book/9781138291867
