Published: Oct 31, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 31, 2012)Professor David Sogin, coordinator for the Music Education and Music Therapy Division at the University of Kentucky School of Music, is the recipient of the 2013 String Researcher Award presented by the American String Teachers Association (ASTA). Every two years this award is given to recognize excellence in string research and is awarded to a researcher whose work has contributed significantly to scholarship in string education and/or performance.

 

Nominees for the ASTA award demonstrate a record of sustained engagement of at least 10 years in the following research activities: publication in juried research journals, professional service in string research, and support of other string researchers.

 

"I am truly honored to receive this String Researcher Award and thankful to the American String Teachers Association as well as my many colleagues for nominating me, and supporting my nomination by presenting me with this award," Sogin said.

 

In addition to the award from the American String Teachers Association, Sogin is the co-editor for the association's scholarly publication String Research Journal. At the UK School of Music in the College of Fine Arts he teaches courses in string methods, principles of research, foundations of music education, music learning and behavior, music and special populations. He also directs theses and dissertations.

 

Sogin received his bachelor's degree from Louisiana State University, a master's degree in music education from North Texas State University, and awarded his doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin in music education. Nationally and internationally, Sogin presents research papers and publishes regularly.

 

The String Researcher Award will be presented to Sogin in February 2013 at the ASTA National Conference in Providence, R.I. ASTA was founded more than 60 years ago and is the premier membership organization for the strings community. Members include K-12 teachers, university string and string education professors, private studio teachers, as well as researchers, orchestra directors, administrators, performers, students, and other string instrumental enthusiasts.
