Music 105-106, an intensive, yearlong "boot camp" for music majors, covering a wide variety of theoretical ideas and musical styles. At this point, my handouts for the classes are extensive enough so that a textbook is unnecessary. (In fact, the handouts may someday become a textbook in their own right.) Since people outside the university have occasionally asked for copies, I am making them available here. (Assignments are also available upon request, to qualified parties.) Please let me know if you find any errors or unclarities!

Automatic roman-numeral analysis correction
To help students learn to do Roman-numeral analysis, I
have devised a system of automated chorale-analysis
correction. Visit this site,
enter an analysis, and you will receive a
report that says how your analysis diverges from
mine. (NB: my analysis is not always the correct
one; I make errors myself, and in many places there are
multiple good analyses.)
I also teach Music 306, an advanced theory class based on my book A Geometry of Music. I have written up a few solutions to problems in the back of the book, which I will mail to teachers upon request.
I also teach a variety of composition-oriented classes, including graduate seminars and an advanced undergraduate composition workshop. Someday I hope to have useful materials to share about these subjects.
Unfortunately, I do not have time to offer private
lessons to non-University students. However, I have
been teaching (with Chris Theofanidas, Amy Beth Kirsten,
and many other talented musicians) at the highSCORE
festival in Pavia, Italy; so if you want to work with me
you can apply there.
