Example Teaching:

Techniques of Research in Music and Music Education (online & on campus)
This is an innovative course for graduate music students to gain research tools and various methodologies that are common to all sub fields of music. The student selects his or her own research topic and works through the process in a collaborative environment.

Music and Medicine
This course explores physical, mental, and psychological aspects of performing arts within the social context. The course focuses on integration of the body, mind, and emotion in music learning and performing; causes, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of music-related injury; and effective management of performance anxiety. Students discuss pragmatic, hands-on issues related to musician's health based on the current scientific knowledge. Students explore opportunities to make meaningful contributions to society. Eminent researcher/physician guests lecture in this class.

Music in Your Life (online)
This course covers the development, concepts, elements, traditions, styles, forms, representative composers, their works, and performance practices of the Western art music, which in turn provide tools to analyze and understand the elements of non-Western music as well as contemporary American classical and popular music. Students in this course will develop skills to analyze and interpret musics of all cultures, and to articulate intelligently and substantively their experiences and opportunities of incorporating music in their life. This online course is a serious music course for general students.

Fit to Play: Mind-Body Integration for Musicians

The purposes of this course are:

 

1)    to impart research-based physical ad mental fitness factors that are essential in preparing a life and career of a performing musician/teacher; and

 

2)    to provide a program of exercises to improve physical and musical fitness for college musicians that are designed specifically for the performing musician.

 

3)    to examine if the physical and mental program is effective in changing posture, muscle strength and flexibility, musical efficacy, mental preparation for rehearsal, improvisation, and performance.
