Serving The Needs Of International Students: A Qualitative Study, Mandi Goodsett, Michael Baumgartner 2019 Cleveland State University

Serving The Needs Of International Students: A Qualitative Study, Mandi Goodsett, Michael Baumgartner

Mandi Goodsett

This study attempts to discover the barriers that international music students encounter when using the library and conducting research at North American academic institutions. To these ends we implemented multiple semi-structured interviews. Most studies that have been conducted about international students and information literacy employ a survey, but other qualitative means of study reveal important insights into the needs of this population. In-depth qualitative research that explores the experiences of international music students has the potential to cultivate better understanding of this phenomenon so that music librarians and faculty can more effectively serve this distinct population.

James Rolfe's Vocal Chamber Music: A Performance Analysis And Interpretation, Laura Duffy

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Guitar Thinking: Perspectives From Music Theory And Cognitive Science, Jonathan De Souza 2019 Western University

Guitar Thinking: Perspectives From Music Theory And Cognitive Science, Jonathan De Souza

Jonathan De Souza

Playing the guitar develops manual habits but also habits of thought. For example, guitarists often conceptualize chords as two-dimensional shapes—an approach that is foreign to pianists. What does it mean, then, to think like a guitarist? This presentation approaches “guitar thinking” from music theory and cognitive science. Recent work in transformational theory examines fretboard space, formalizing physical patterns instead of sounding ones. Yet the guitar is both an object of music-theoretical inquiry and also a music-theoretical tool. From the late sixteenth century to the present, guitars have been used in the production of musical knowledge and discourse. Epistemic aspects ...


Performing Musical Memoir: Autobiography, Narrative And Memory In Leoš Janáček’S Mládí, John Eichhorn 2019 University of Colorado, Boulder

Performing Musical Memoir: Autobiography, Narrative And Memory In Leoš Janáček’S Mládí, John Eichhorn

Music Theory Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Leoš Janáček writes in a letter to Kamila Stösslová, his paramour, dated July 24, 1924: “I have composed a sort of memoir of youth” (trans. Tyrell 2014, 53). The piece to which Janáček is referring is Mládí, a four-movement chamber work for wind sextet consisting of flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, bassoon, and bass clarinet. This thesis examines Mládí, which means youth in Czech, through an autobiographical lens. Drawing on Vincent Meelberg’s New Sounds, New Stories and Carolyn Abbate’s Unsung Voices, I construct childhood narratives for the first three movements of the wind sextet; I refer to biographical details ...


Developing A Pedagogical Method Of Stylistic Keyboard Improvisation, Jonathan Morris 2019 University of Colorado, Boulder

Developing A Pedagogical Method Of Stylistic Keyboard Improvisation, Jonathan Morris

Keyboard Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Although improvisation today is often associated with jazz or contemporary music, it played an important role in Western Art Music performances until recently. For many great composers of the past, improvisation was a central element of the music-making process. Often, pianists and composers would include improvised portions of music in their concerts or would alter their compositions in real time during performances. Many factors led to the decline of this type of music, including composers’ desire for more control with regard to their compositions and the advent of recording technology. As technological advances came to allow for note-perfect recordings, improvisations ...
