Indiana Theory Review

Publishing since 1977, Indiana Theory Review provides a venue for creative and imaginative articles on music theory, a forum for the thoughtful exchange of ideas and directions in the field through letters and editorial comments, and an opportunity for review of books and periodicals dealing with a variety of music subjects. Each semiannual, peer-reviewed issue, sponsored by Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, its Department of Music Theory, and the Graduate Theory Association, showcases the basic philosophy of sound scholarship and high quality performance as the hallmarks of superior music education.
