Finding a methodological approach within which to work is not straightforward for practitioner-researchers engaged in practice centred enquiry. These enquiries typically have a qualitative orientation, sometimes centred on a small sample of participants, allowing for an in-depth analysis of particular cases. They tend to result in knowledge that is useful for other practitioners. Authors of such projects also develop understanding of how research knowledge is produced and reported. This chapter focuses on these issues within the context of music education research. Topics discussed include: the introduction of professional doctorates in the landscape of research degrees; finding a valid research approach; addressing multiple audiences; and ethical issues in disseminating results with participants.
