The LYREBIRD PRESS was established at the University of Melbourne in 2006 to continue the work of Éditions de l’Oiseau-Lyre (The Lyrebird Press), established in Paris in 1932 by Melbourne-born benefactress and patron of the arts Louise Hanson-Dyer (1884–1962). The focus of the Melbourne Lyrebird Press is music and Australia.
Lyrebird Press has published both books about music and music editions (see below) and we are the publishers of the scholarly book series, Australasian Music Research (AMR), founded in 1996. Authors and researchers into Australian music interested in publishing with us can find more information about AMR here, and guidelines for submission of book proposals are also available.
