I am a music historian specializing in Western art music of the nineteenth- and twentieth centuries. My specific area of interest is in French music and its relationship to philosophy, criticism, and general intellectual culture.
I offer courses on a variety of musical topics: the history of Western art music from the medieval era to the present; music and philosophy; American popular music; Sondheim; Beethoven; world music; etc.
In a former life I was a pianist, and on rare occasions, I have been known to dust off the keys and jam for old times' sake. Outside of music, my hobbies include German board games and fountain pens.
