Research is an intrinsic part of life at Sage Gateshead, where staff and practitioners are constantly developing innovative approaches, especially in music performance and participation.

Because of the large scale and reach of our programme, much has been written about Sage Gateshead academically, even before we opened the doors of our building in 2004. Until recently, this body of research knowledge about Sage Gateshead could be found within the published outputs of the institutions, organisations and funders involved, but we’re currently developing this web page as a place where we can bring it all together in one place.

Research at Sage Gateshead takes place across many contexts:

  • Members of staff document the work we deliver for funders and other partners, and this has built over time into a compelling account of best practice in music and music education
  • Academic staff within the organisation undertake RSA (Research and Scholarly Activity), to help keep our academic knowledge up-to-date and relevant, and give our students valid and authentic current perspectives on practice
  • Researchers from outside Sage Gateshead (e.g. undergraduate and postgraduate students based at other institutions) regularly use our programme as a site for research
