This research project draws attention to the methodological questions of artistic research in music education. As we define a music pedagogue's artistry within the musical teaching and learning process, and not in a musical product, it is essential to reconstruct and communicate real time artistic interventions in a valid and reliable way. This insight creates an interesting methodological challenge. Starting from an existing conceptual framework (based on the artistic PhD research by Thomas De Baets), we study four specific cases of music educational practice. We explore different possibilities to map these interventions. Hereby we consider the participating music educators as complete (artistic) co-researchers. This project is an important methodological exploration that can inform, support and guide future artistic research in music pedagogy. The main research goal is to develop a new research method. The research project results in a symposium and the publication of a methodological handbook.
