Chair, Music Theory
Our graduate program in music theory is a special blend of cutting-edge academic research and innovative pedagogy, enhanced by the rich musical life of one of the world's finest music schools, and coupled with the scholarly resources of a first-class university.
The music theory faculty represent broad and varied interests from the traditional to the experimental, and are nationally and internationally recognized leaders in their areas of research. We are a department actively involved in reaching out to the larger scholarly world, and we invite you to join us.
Membership in the Graduate Theory Association is open to all graduate students interested in music theory. With the ultimate purpose of promoting collegiality within the music theory community at IU, the group functions both as an academic/professional-development group and as a social organization.
Our many successful alumni attest to the extraordinary environment we offer. The overwhelming majority of our graduates obtain teaching and administrative positions in major research universities, liberal arts colleges, and schools of music.
The music theory department is pleased to announce the following faculty appointments beginning in fall 2013:
Andrew Mead, Professor of Music Theory
Daphne Tan, Assistant Professor of Music Theory
Christopher Brody, Post-Doctoral Resident Scholar in Music Theory
