Music Scholars Series: Dr. Megan Lavengood

Arts/Entertainment

What is "our music"? As an institution in the intermountain West, USU is located in a place associated with many different kinds of music. The decisions we make about which of these we foreground have profound implications. What do our students deserve to learn? Which faculty have the responsibility—or the right—to teach each repertoire? And how, as a university, do we define the collective “us” we seek to serve? Dr. Megan Lavengood is an Associate Professor and Area Director of Music Theory at George Mason University, where she teaches undergraduate core theory and graduate courses in advanced theory topics. Her research primarily deals with popular music, timbre, synthesizers, and recording techniques. She has also published on video game music, music theory pedagogy, and public music theory.
