We are open to candidates with teaching specialisms in any area of music theory and performance, but it is vital that the successful candidate is able to teach across a range of levels, ranging from introductory first-year courses to advanced classes in theory and analysis. The successful candidate will be able to teach a range of core topics including music literacy, tonal harmony (including keyboard harmony), counterpoint, formal analysis, some post[1]tonal theory (including serialism, chance, and text and graphic notation), improvisation, and some music technology, though we do not expect candidates to be equally expert across all of these areas.
