Congratulations to Prof. Evans for being appointed to CIRMMT as a full faculty member

Prof. Evans' research  projects will examine knowledge sharing among musicians.  The first is an experimental study further exploring the role of competence- and integrity-based trust on willingness to share and use knowledge among musicians. The second project would explore the universal movements of expert musicians, with the goal of seeing if these ‘universals’ can be transferred to musicians in beginning and intermediate stages of learning.
