Andrew Greenwood

Visiting Assistant Professor of Music History

Andrew Greenwood has been Visiting Assistant Professor of Music History in the Meadows School of the Arts since Fall 2012. In 2012 he received his Ph.D. in History and Theory of Music at the University of Chicago with a dissertation entitled “Mediating Sociability: Musical Ideas of Sympathy, Sensibility, and Improvement in the Scottish Enlightenment.” In 2011-12 he was awarded both a Mrs. Giles Whiting Dissertation Fellowship and a Stuart Tave Teaching Fellowship, the latter to teach a course of his own design on Music and the Enlightenment. Inspired by intersections between performance and history, he served as artistic director to the Newberry Consort in Chicago, Ill. for their 2013 series concert entitled “My Heart’s in the Highlands: Poems and Songs of Robbie Burns,” which brought to life music from his archival research in Scotland, and was supported by grants from the Nicholson Center for British Studies. In 2012, he presented major research papers at the annual meeting of the American Musicological Society, the International Musicological Society, the American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies and Yale University. Greenwood has an article forthcoming on the Scottish songster (ed. Derek B. Scott and Paul Watt) and others currently under review. At SMU, he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on opera history, issues in symphonic literature, and introduction to graduate research, writing, and historiography. Passionate about teaching and student learning, he is member of interdisciplinary faculty learning communities on “Teaching with Technology” and “Intrinsic Motivation and Play.” Originally from Canberra, Australia, Greenwood holds an M.Phil. from the University of Sydney (with high distinction) and undergraduate degrees in music (first class honors) and mathematics from the Australian National University. Greenwood serves as Member-at-Large of the Eighteenth Century Scottish Studies Society.
