Jill Wilson, assistant professor of music at Morningside College, recently has been sharing her dissertation research with other music educators, and she has taken on leadership roles in two professional organizations.
Wilson presented research for her dissertation, “Practices of and Attitudes Toward Treble Choral Ensembles,” in April at the international Research in Music Education conference at the University of Exeter in England. She also was selected to give a poster presentation on her research in June at the Summer Symposium of the Society for Research in Music Education in Washington, D.C.
In addition, Wilson recently was named editor of the “Sounding Board,” a quarterly publication of the Iowa Choral Directors Association, and she is joining the Iowa Music Educators Association Board as the Society for Music Teacher Education chair.
Wilson just completed her first year as an assistant professor of music after serving two years as a visiting instructor of music education at Morningside College. She previously was an adjunct faculty member at Morningside and the director of the Leo Kucinski Academy of Music. Wilson has experience teaching music at all levels. She has a doctorate in music education from Boston University in Massachusetts.
