Dr Marilyn Chaseling BMus(Adel), GradDipEd(ArmidaleCAE), MEd(NE), PhD(DEAKIN) Dr Marilyn Chaseling is the Deputy Head of School in the School of Education at Southern Cross University. Marilyn's research interests focus on the creative arts, particularly music, and the ways in which both curriculum and pedagogy have been approached over time in order to engage, stimulate and develop the potential of children and young people. Her doctoral thesis, titled /Teaching Music in New South Wales Primary Schools: 1920—1956, /pointed to a number of key historical issues that usefully inform contemporary classroom practice, namely the contribution of music to the development of children as 'good citizens'; the importance of strong leadership for music in schools by employing conscientious, inspirational music educators who can champion and develop a love of music in both children and teachers; the important role of pre-service teacher education and professional development in improving the confidence, disciplinary knowledge and skills of generalist teachers in and for music education; a music syllabus that recognises the creative potential of children and young people; and teachers who are able to convey to their students an evident and shared respect for music. Marilyn J Chaseling has also published under the name of Marilyn Ryan.
