At the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts there are three doctoral trajectories. The docARTES programme was designed for practice-based research in the musical arts, performed by  musician-researchers (performers, composers, etc.). The PhDArts programme is the trajectory for artist-researchers in visual arts and design. The academy also hosts external PhD’s. Below are completed research projects.

Despite most pianists' claims of historical deference and creative agency, their performances of Brahms's piano works are nothing like the early-recorded performances of the composer and his students: gaps that are mediated by understandings of Brahms's Classical canonic identity, the performance norms that protect that identity, and those norms' underlying aesthetic ideology of control.
