Trevor R. Nelson is an Assistant Professor of Musicology at Wichita State University. His research centers the post-World War II British Commonwealth and how music informed globally minded Britishness. He is currently working on a book, tentatively titled Let's Make a Commonwealth: Musical Britishness at the Twilight of Empire, which considers music as a form of educational media which teachers and broadcasters used to reform British identity in the wake of imperial decline. Other research interests include music education radio and television programs, children's music cultures, and music and the British royal family. His writing has appeared in Twentieth-Century Music, Ethnomusicology Review, and NABMSA Review. He completed his Ph.D. at the Eastman School of Music–University of Rochester in 2023.
