The International Research Symposium on Talent Education (IRSTE) highlights the applications of research as it relates to music teaching and learning. Of special interest are those topics that relate specifically to aspects of the Suzuki Method. Established by Margery Aber in 1990 at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the symposium is a means to promote research among Suzuki teachers, disseminate research that influences teaching practice, and educate teachers to use research in resolving studio challenges. Past keynote speakers have included Dr. Robert A. Duke, Dr. Laurel Trainor and Dr. Robert Cutietta. In addition, to research presentations and a poster session, participants may be selected to present a project or an idea in progress and to receive feedback from the keynote presenter.

Keynote Presenter: Dr. Aniruddh Patel
Author of Music, Language, and the Brain

Thursday, May 26: The Origins and Power of Synchronized Movements to Music
Friday, May 27: Hidden Connections Between Music and Language Processing in the Brain
