Biographical details

Peter Dunbar-Hall is a music educator and ethnomusicologist known for his research on contemporary aboriginal Australian music and Balinese music, and teaches music education at the Conservatorium of Music.

His current research focus is on music transmission (how music is learned and taught) in Balinese gamelan music. He is also a performing member of Sekaa Gong Tirta Sinar, a Sydney-based Balinese gamelan gong kebyar. He is also a partner investigator in a large ARC grant to research community music across Australia.

Dr. Dunbar-Hall has published widely in the areas of the history and philosophy of music education, Australian cultural history, Aboriginal music, popular music studies, and Balinese gamelan music and dance. He is the author of Strella Wilson: The Career of an Australian Singer (Redback Press, 1997), and is the co-author of Deadly Sounds, Deadly Places: Contemporary Aboriginal Music in Australia (UNSW Press, 2004) with Chris Gibson.

A graduate of the music departments of the University of Sydney (BA Hons) and the University of New South Wales (MMus, PhD), Dr Dunbar-Hall’s doctoral research was a sociological study of the stylistic characteristics of Aboriginal popular music.
