Since September 2007, I have been Professor of Jazz and Improvised Music at the University of Amsterdam whilst working as Research coordinator in the Jazz and Classical Masterís program at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.† This post requires me to deliver Music history electives in the Jazz Masters program and teach music history for the Bachelors programme.† Working across both University and Conservatoire settings has provided me with valuable insights into different musical environments and has enabled me to develop research interests that are both practically and theoretically focused.
We are continuing to redevelop the Rhythm Changes website as a jazz research portal for European jazz researchers. Please bear with us as we populate the site, and sign up or visit us again to see how we are getting on. If you have some material or feature you think we should be including, do get in touch.
