Primary Instructor:


Guided by a passion for music as a deeply human endeavor, we teach in and out of classrooms, for different audiences, for various levels of understanding, and for a multitude of reasons. This course revolves around teaching musicology at the university level but keeps at the forefront the development of pedagogical skills for engaging wider and diverse audiences in other settings. The course integrates theoretical and practical readings, explores various instructional strategies, and offers students hands-on experience with designing courses, syllabi, assignments, and classroom activities; leading and participating in discussions; and reflecting and writing about the challenges of teaching.

Intended Audience:

Graduate students, including non-musicology students with a strong interest in teaching music history, are welcome to join the class.

Class Format:

Students should expect to prepare and deliver in-class teaching presentations throughout the semester.
