Module Tutor: Ensemble Musicianship
The HE & Research team is led by Dave Camlin, a musician whose professional portfolio includes performance, composition, teaching, organisational development, management and research. He’s performed all over the world as a singer / song-writer and with a variety of bands, including Mouthful, The Coast Road, Human Music, Tryckster and Altar Native. The founding Creative Director of Cumbrian music organisation SoundWave from 2005-10, he was also one of the organisers of Solfest music festival from 2002-2015.
He completed his Professional Doctorate (DProf) in 2015, using Action research to investigate the situation of undergraduate learning within Sage Gateshead’s artistic programme, revealing an ‘integrative’ model of ‘music in three dimensions’ which emphasises the inter-dependence between three dimensions of music’s power: the aesthetic (presentational), the praxial (participatory), and the transformational (social). With a growing international profile for his academic work, he teaches across both programmes in subjects such as song writing, vocal arranging and leading, ensemble leadership, performance development, professional studies, research / study skills and academic development.
