An alumna of the prestigious University of Cambridge, Faculty of Education, Annabelle Berthomé-Reynolds, wrote, under the supervision of Dr. Pamela BURNARD, a thesis grounded on neuroscience in education through the lense of art : “Self-regulating strategies and instrumental music learning: An investigation on effective practice in private , individual violin tuition to adult beginners”, BERTHOMÉ-REYNOLDS, 2010, MEd / MPhil thesis, University of Cambridge.

Annabelle’s research focuses on three areas: cognition (including neuro-dominance), metacognition, and behaviours in the learning process. She thus analysed a variety of metacognitive strategies according to their combined efficiencies for the optimisation, and the autonomous regulation, of young instrumentalists learning paths.

Stemming from her analysis and timely findings on self-regulated learning and interpersonal relationships, Annabelle has developed a learning profile test for any audience, whether you are musician or not, to assess one’s cognitive and metacognitive engagement in music, school, university or at work. together, an analysis of the behaviors of your left hemisphere and your right hemisphere in situ. This test allows you to know yourself better in your learning of the world and in your relationships with others.

Indeed, studies in social sciences have proven on many occasions that knowing oneself and the ‘true self’ allows one (i) to be more confident in oneself and one’s abilities, (ii) to recover the fulfillment in one’s life path, (iii) to reconnect to your creativity and (iv) feel more comfortable in your relationships, at work, at school and at home.
