Study with world-class faculty

As faculty scholars, we are dedicated to exploring music’s intellectual, critical, structural, and social domains.

We are experienced in a broad array of approaches and methodologies, including Schenkerian analysis, serialism, transformation theory, informatics, and cultural studies.

And we are passionate about musical repertoires ranging from the classical music of the long eighteenth century through a variety of twentieth-century genres to post-millennial pop.
