Welcome to Advancing Music Theory, a collaborative wiki for sharing ideas and resources pertaining to a new curricular approach to undergraduate music theory.

About this site

This site is managed by Stefanie Acevedo, Assistant Professor of Music Theory at the University of Connecticut, and Toby Rush, Associate Professor of Music Theory and Technology at the University of Dayton.

At the 2020 annual conference of Music Theory Midwest, we presented a new approach to undergraduate music theory which we have put into place at the University of Dayton. During and after the presentation, we were delighted to hear from others in the field who were interested in pursuing similar efforts in their own curricula, and in November 2021 we were honored to receive an Honorable Mention for the inaugural SMT Award for Diversity Course Design for this ongoing work.

The first step in our process toward creating a textbook to support our new curriculum was to create a list of resources — course objectives, worksheets, research, software, and so on. We realized that opening this process to others would not only allow us to benefit from the diversity of talents that our curricular approach celebrates, but it would allow others to reap the same benefits. This site is the product of that decision.

How the site works

Lesson Pages

The core of the wiki are the LESSON PAGES, each of which is devoted to a specific lesson topic. A lesson may comprise one or more days of classroom instruction. You can find the lessons arranged below into a four-semester course sequence (please see SAMPLE SCHEDULES for some possible week-to-week arrangements) or by topic.

Each Lesson Page has five sections:

  • Objectives, which lists relevant lesson objectives;
  • Resources, which lists learning resources: readings (for student assignments), instructor references (for more in-depth/advanced information), videos or listening (audio and video resources), and tools (demos, software, and other teaching aids).
  • Class Activities, which includes lecture notes and other activities for in-class learning;
  • Assignments, which include individual worksheets, quizzes, sample questions, and other assignments; and
  • Notes, which can include general information about the lesson.
General Resources

The GENERAL RESOURCES page contains a categorized list of commonly used websites and other resources with brief descriptions.

Implementations

The lesson pages are arranged in a four-semester course sequence. However, given the modular design, this affords a variety of arrangements and experimentation. You can see some ideas of how these are implemented on our SAMPLE SCHEDULES and SYLLABUS SAMPLES pages.

Discussion

Discussion among authors about specific lessons should be included on each page's Discussion page (see the tabs along the top to find the discussion page). Also feel free to email us (Stefacev and TobyRush) with any questions!
