The Reverend Professor June Boyce-Tillman MBE attended Hugh's College, Oxford, where she read Music. June then went on to teach in London in both primary and secondary schools, as part of her work with the Inner London Education Authority's Centre for Young Musicians. After her pioneering work, which introduced activities where children could compose their own music in the classroom, June completed her PhD at the Institute of Education Towards a Model of the Musical Development of Children.
June's research in this area has had an international influence, having been translated into 4 different languages, and has led her to lecture, give papers, and lead workshops across the world, which is work that she still continues. June's work has led to her presenting for BBC Schools Radio, and her position as the Music in Education Section of the Incorporated Society of Musicians.
June is a member of the University's Centre for the Arts as Wellbeing, part of the interdisciplinary Health and Wellbeing Research Group, and she is Convener of the University's Tavener Centre for Music and Spirituality. She is also Extraordinary Professor at North West University, USA.
