ExpertiseNineteenth-century music. Theory and analysis. History of theory. Liszt. Music and Meaning
ProfileBoth as scholar and teacher, on the undergraduate as well as graduate level, my interests center around theory and analysis and the history of theory, and 19th century musicology, especially Franz Liszt. I also have an interest in African-American studies that relate to the subject of my biography, Marian Anderson.
