Music Education alumna named Outstanding Emerging Researcher

Hyesoo Yoo (PhD Music Education) won the Outstanding Emerging Researcher Award that is presented bienially in conjunction with the Suncoast Music Education Research Symposium. The primary purpose of the award is to recognize music education scholars who are producing high quality research at early stages of their careers. Dr. Yoo, who is a member of the music education faculty at Virginia Tech University, presented her recent research titled “A Motivational Sequence Model of Students’ Intentions to Continue Participating in Music” during the Symposium. The findings offer a more comprehensive understanding of the psychological process involved in high school ensemble students’ future intentions to participate in music.
