Her research “Towards sensitive music teaching. Pathways to becoming a professional music educator” (2012) focuses on the formation process of the professional skills needed in music teaching, the development of expertise and sense of professional identity formed during the study/learning process in order to become a music educator.

She has been developing the content and structure of the studies in the degree programme to be more learner-centered and to focus on participatory teaching methods. Her pedagogical areas of specialization are: early childhood music education, special music education, pre-instrumental music education, arts integration and movement, as working methods in music education.
