Introduction

Prof. Fanny Chung is an Assistant Professor of Cultural Management at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. She obtained her doctoral degree from the University of Bristol, specializing in Creative Programmes in Arts and Music Education. Her research encompasses the interlinked areas of performing arts and heritage management, outreach and education in cultural institutions, curriculum theories and practice in music education, early childhood education, cultural transmission of Chinese theatre arts in the global age, and teacher development in the arts. Her books in Music and Creative Arts in Early Childhood published by Oxford University Press have been widely acclaimed.

Her more recent publications look at self-efficacy and social psychology in musical performances and education, cultural development related to Chinese theatre arts, and outreach and audience-building in performing arts institutions. One recent article “Translating Culture-Bound Elements: A Case Study of Traditional Chinese Theater in the Socio-Cultural Context of Hong Kong” examines the phenomenon of cultural heritage transmission through the lens of translation of Chinese theatre arts in the socio-cultural context of Hong Kong; another article “Developing Audiences Through Outreach and Education in the Major Performing Arts Institutions in Hong Kong : Towards a Conceptual Framework” uncovers the interplay of outreach and audience-building in non-profit performing arts institutions with the global cultural landscape and ecology of public funding mechanism. Another recent article “The Impact of Music Pedagogy Education on Early Childhood Teachers’ Self-Efficacy in Teaching Music: A Study of Music Teacher Education Program” investigates how the development of teacher self-efficacy as theorized by the social cognitive theory co-relates with the framework of music teacher education in light of the local, national and international cultural and education policy. Currently, Prof. Chung is following the conservation development of Chinese Opera in Mainland China and Hong Kong, and how music education responds to sociopolitical changes and education policy in the global age.
