The Ethnomusicology Institute
Ethnomusicology is the study of music of all types and from all cultures. Ethnomusicologists not only listen to the sounds of music within particular cultures and events but also inquire into people's ideas and beliefs about music. They:
- Explore the role of music in human life
- Analyze relationships between music and culture
- Study music cross-culturally
At Indiana University, Ethnomusicology is a comprehensive and interdisciplinary program that emphasizes analytical, theoretical, and methodological training in ethnomusicology and ethnographic research.
