José Alberto Salgado e Silva works with ethnomusicology and music education since the completion of his master's degree in 2000, following a musical carrer as instumentalist, arranger and composer. Between 2001 and 2005, his doctoral ethnographic research examined the theme of professionalization, with undergraduate Music students in Rio de Janeiro. The investigation of interrelated topics of technique, ethics, aesthetics and economy – along the pathways of professional interests in music – continues to be central in his work at teaching courses, supervising research projects and producing writings, frequently in interlocution with students and colleagues at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Universidade Federal do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO) and, from April 2015, Universidade de Aveiro (Portugal), where José Alberto is now Visiting Professor and collaborates as an investigator with INET-md.
