  1. Hi everyone! I'm a rising senior at a pretty prestigious LAC, and am planning on applying to about ten PhD programs in music theory this fall. I'm pursuing a BM in Music Education/Piano Performance and a BA in Psychology, and my main area of interest for research is music cognition. Grade-wise, I have a 4.0 GPA for each of my majors and a 3.99 GPA overall. I took an independent study last fall with a music theory professor where I wrote two short (~20 page) papers to serve as writing samples for graduate school, and I'm currently in the process of writing my senior honors thesis which
  2. I’m looking at several top music theory PhD programs (Eastman, Yale, Columbia, Harvard, Northwestern...just to name a few) and was wondering how heavily GRE scores are weighed for applicants. My current scores are 160V, 150Q, and 4.5A, so my quant score is low, but I’ve heard that humanities programs generally only care about verbal and writing scores. I’ve considered retaking it to boost my quant score, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the time and money. Additionally, I have a 3.99 GPA at my undergrad institution, so I’m wondering if this might be able to offset my lower quant score. Any i
  3. Over the past decade or so, the concept of melody seems to have changed from what it was for Rock or Big Band melodies. There are songs being written with the traditional concept of melody and I have provided some examples below. However, the most prominent interpretation of melody is what I’m calling contemporary melody. In the past melodies were an important component of the marketability of the song. However, today melodies seem more like an afterthought. As I will demonstrate in this paper, it is possible to statistically measure the difference in variation between traditional and
  4. Hello all looking for fellow people who are applying for musicology graduate programs. Just wondering how everyone's interviews and acceptances or going. The last thread I found on this subject was a few years ago. I've applied to 6 programs and have received 2 interviews. Waiting for the rest. If you would like to talk about programs or have advise, I would love to hear it!
  5. Hello grad cafè hive mind! I’m an opera singer about to complete my MM in vocal performance. Being back in school he made me remember how much I love music history, and I want to pursue a career as a professor of music history/musicologist. I applied to pretty much just reach schools for Fall 2018 and was rejected from all, offered a Masters program at 2, which I could not finding for that year. While I’ve already learned much from the experience, I’d like to reach out and see if anyone else has had a similar background. How do I spin my performance experience into a strength? What
  6. Hi Everyone! Are there any music folks out there? I took a glance at some of the discussions and there are not many that concentrate on the music field. Not going to lie, I am a bit more nervous with these grad applications than I was with my undergrad. I received a bachelor of music education from a well respected private university and have been teaching for a few years. My end goal is to obtain a PhD in Musicology and teach at the collegiate level. I would love to hear of others stories as we wait this thing out. Schools in which I applied:Arizona State MA in Musicology, Ucla MA Music
  7. Hello all, I am a M.A. student in musicology. I will apply to Individual PhD's in Europe (particularly Germany) for Fall semester 2018, but I couldn't find an answer on the internet for one particular question. My PhD project focuses on computer music and posthumanism. So, I am looking for a supervisor in both musicology and philosophy fields. I wonder if I find a supervisor in the philosophy department, would I face an obstacle when I am registering to the university. It would be a nonconsecutive PhD and I thought maybe they'll want a diploma in the same field. I want to know what is the
  8. This is precisely what the title suggests. Invite everyone planning to apply for a master's course in the field of Music to share concerns, updates here. And I request everyone already enrolled in such programmes to help us out. @Musicologist I am personally confused between Musicology and Ethnomusicology and want to find out more about Music therapy as a programme. Any disussion around it is much appreciated!
  9. I semi-finalized the list of schools to apply for musicology phd programs based on the interests of their faculty matching mine, but would like to know from those "in the know" if the programs I chose would potentially be suspicious of my age. I'm 34 - spent the last ten years playing and teaching music - and now I want to finally go for the final degree. I know my age can look unambitious, compared to those applying at age 22. I was told by one professor it depends on the program. So if any of you are already in these programs, I would be grateful if you shared your comments and observations!
  10. Hello friends!I'm a student in SAE institute of music production, and I'm finishing my dissertation. I’m doing a research about music emotionslooking into the emotional power of music, and I really need feedbacks from a great sample of people! Would you like to help me?It doesn’t take long: in 20 minutes you should be fine. And is not difficult at all! Just listen to some musical pattern and tick on the words that you think better describe them.Here there are 4 versions of the same questionnaire, you can choose to do all of them or even just one. Pick one of them:https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk
  11. Hi everyone, I'm new to this website. I have a couple of questions I was hoping one of the musicology MA/PhD students could help me with. I've graduated in 2010 from a pretty strong comprehensive music/piano performance program and I've been working since, but seeing how many more people are applying for graduate schools than I have anticipated, I decided to give it a shot myself. I'm looking for an MA in musicology, and I'm particularly interested in the study of Jewish sacred music and its historical development. I'm residing in Ontario, Canada, and the only university that I know specialize
  12. Hey hey, Any musicologists out there? What are your opinions of Indiana's musicology program and perhaps how it compares to the program at BU? I'm planning to specialize in medieval music. If you have any insight or advice, I would really, really appreciate it!
