Instructor of Music

Andrew Wilson is Visiting Instructor of Music Theory at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music. He received a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano and a Master of Music degree in Music Theory from Indiana University, and he is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Music Theory at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. His principal teachers are William Rothstein, Joseph Straus, Frank Samarotto, Robert Hatten, and Richard Kramer. Before coming to Lawrence in the fall of 2015, Mr. Wilson taught at Oberlin Conservatory, The City College of New York, and Indiana University.

His dissertation combines interests in rhythm and meter, musical semiotics, and the relationship between analysis and performance. It explores the experiential nature of meter especially in rhythmically consistent and dance-related musics, offering refinements to the theories of phenomenal accent, metrical dissonance, and the broader natures of meter.

Mr. Wilson has presented research at numerous regional and national conferences, including Music Theory Midwest, Music Theory Southeast, the Society for Music Theory national conference, and the Semiotic Society of America.
