Lynn Shane, of Boston University, is trying to figure out the ways that music and gender intersect. Does this sound interesting? Here’s how you can get involved to help.
Lynn is a music educator and voice teacher in the greater Boston area. She works with teenage transgender, gender non-binary and cisgender singers. This study is part of her doctoral research at Boston University. She needs volunteers in the New England area between ages 18 and 24 who participated in music during high school and who identify under the transgender/gender variant umbrella (including, but not limited to, transgender, agender, two-spirit, bigender, pangender, genderqueer, gender fluid, gender variant, gender non-conforming, intersex, androgynous, gender non-binary, queer, or questioning).
If chosen for the study, you will asked to take part in three(3) interviews at a safe location that is mutually convenient for both of us. All the interviews will remain completely confidential and no identifying information will be shared in the study. By participating in this study, you will help music educators and students learn more about the ways that music and gender intersect as well as ways that teachers can create music environments that are more respectful and inclusive.
