Teaching Music History at the School of Music at Soochow University: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Western Music as a Living Tradition

Annie Yen-Ling Liu

Abstract


My institution, Soochow University, has recently expanded its department of music into a school of music with a largely international faculty in performance, musicology, theory, and composition. Questions of teaching music history must be addressed by every professor teaching “music history” in a college or university, given the expansion of repertoires, methodologies, and objects of study during the last several decades. My task here is to consider specific challenges or issues concerning the teaching of musicology in China/Asia.
