Martin Ashley worked in a variety of school and university settings before retiring in 2013 as Head of Education Research at Edge Hill University.  He has specialised in the adolescent male voice and prior to COVID-19 he was working on the consequences of earlier voice change and boys’ musical maturity in mixed gender choral settings. As editor-in-chief of the Association of British Choral Directors’ research journal he assembled a small team of virologists and public health professionals to produce a rapid response review of choral singing and COVID-19.
