Musicology is the academic study of music . Musicologists may study quite a wide range of subjects. Some, forinstance, may specialise in English Tudor church music, others in the history of musical notation and others in the development of the flute .



Ethnomusicology is the study of music in its cultural context. Itcan be considered the anthropology of music. Jeff Todd Titon has called it thestudy of "people making music". It is often thought of as a study of non-Western musics, but may include the study of Westernmusic from an anthropological perspective.

The New Musicology

The New Musicology is a term applied to a wide body of workproduced by many musicologists who consider themselves neither new or New. Often based on the work of Theodor Adorno and feminist , gender studies , or postcolonial hypotheses, the New Musicology is the cultural study , analysis, and criticism of music. As Susan McClary says, "musicology fastidiously declares issues of musical signification off-limits to thoseengaged in legitimate scholarship."
