The Society for Education, Music and Psychology Research (Sempre) was founded in 1972, growing out of the Reading Conferences on Research in Music Education that were started in 1966 by Arnold Bentley. Originally known as the 'Society for Research in Psychology of Music and Music Education' ('SRPMME'), Sempre remains to this day the only society which embraces research in both music education and music psychology, providing an international forum to encourage the exchange of ideas and to disseminate research findings.
Greetings to all in the Psychology of Music community,
I am honoured to have been appointed as the incoming Editor of Psychology of Music. I am extremely fortunate to be taking over from Alexandra Lamont who, alongside the Editorial Board and the team at SAGE, has done a superb job over the past five years.

Sempre is glad to receive another special 'Thank You' from Arthur Gill and all his SEN students, in Pakistan.
The Sempre Seminars are an exciting new initiative to broaden the reach of Sempre into universities. This initiative involves Sempre sponsoring relevant seminars within existing seminar series, covering the attendance costs of a speaker with relevant research interests, and, where possible, sending a Sempre representative to introduce the event.
