Subject Area: Music

In this course students will learn a range of strategies for analyzing a broad range of music. Each strategy will begin with a problem: of technique, of experience, of description. Different analytical methods will be used to explore different problems. As well as learning how to undertake different modes of analysis, the course will discuss readings that are relevant to the analysis and the repertoire for which it is appropriate. By studying both the methodology and intellectual discourse, the course aims to provide a solid understanding of significant analytical methods, and an understanding of how and why they are implemented.
