CV  (Prof. Dr. Susanne Dreßler)

Susanne Dreßler studied music and German at the Leipzig University of Music and Drama and at the University of Leipzig from 1999 to 2005. This was followed by supplementary studies in music theory, elementary music pedagogy and piano pedagogy before she moved to the University of Bremen as a research assistant in 2007. There she received her doctorate in 2010 with a qualitative-empirical thesis on "School Development with Choir and Wind Classes". This was followed by a traineeship and teaching position at a Hessian high school (including founding and directing a teachers' choir) as well as work as a research assistant at the universities of Kassel and Bielefeld. In the academic year 2014/2015, she took over the substitute professorship for music education at the University of Siegen and moved to the European University of Flensburg for the fall semester 2015/2016, where she held a junior professorship until December 2021 and then a full professorship for music education. In addition, she completed further training as a music therapist. Her work in music education is enriched by teaching assignments, freelance work for the edukatione educational agency, editing a podcast, and artistic performances.


Research Focus  (Prof. Dr. Susanne Dreßler)

Her work and research focuses, on the one hand, on qualitative-empirical research of music pedagogical projects on school and classroom research (for example, in the context of all-day schools or in the environment of JeKi accompanying research as well as research on the Musikalische Grundschule). On the other hand, she dedicates herself to selected basic theoretical questions on musical-aesthetic education in a hermeneutic research style, recently for example on the concept of appropriation in music education. In addition, questions at the interface of music didactics and music education (such as problem-solving music lessons) are a focal point of interest. This always involves the relationship between people and music in music pedagogical and musical situations, which are enriched by facets and approaches of elementary music pedagogy and music therapy. An essential research focus is also the investigation of teaching-learning processes in university learning workshops.
