Music is a major field of knowledge and research area, relevant to a number of disciplines. KMH aims to be a center for interdisciplinary research in music and music education in Sweden. In collaboration with the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, and the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts at Lund University, we have postgraduate education on artistic as well as scientific basis.
Externally funded, national and international research projects and a higher seminar for research in music, are important parts of our research environment. We are actively working on developing research-driven teaching.
KMH also collaborates closely with, for example, KTH, Sophiahemmet and Karolinska Institutet, KI, in Sweden, but also several international higher educations institutions. A number of ongoing projects at KMH today affect many different areas, such as the role of music and art in society, improvisation, composition as dramaturgical method, notation of abstract sounds and interaction between dancers and musicians in Swedish folk music.
