Professor Song's research interests focus on the method and practice of music teaching and learning, and on Western European vocal music before 1750 which she continues to explore with In Mulieribus, a professional female vocal ensemble she co-founded and leads as artistic director. She teaches courses in music education, musicianship, and music history, and directs the Linfield College Concert Choir and Cascara Voce.
