I am Emeritus Professor of Education at Edge Hill University UK. My principal research topic is the adolescent male voice. I have received two substantial grants from the Arts and Humanities Research Council to develop work on the sociology of young male involvement in singing and the process of voice change during adolescence. An AHRC funded collaboration with the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain led to the creation of "Boys Keep Singing". BKS Media is the continuation of this project into retirement.
