Andrew Greenwood is Assistant Professor of Musicology and Graduate Program Director in the Department of Music at SIUE. He received his Ph.D. in History and Theory of Music from the University of Chicago in 2012 with a dissertation titled “Musical Ideas of Sympathy, Sensibility, and Improvement in the Scottish Enlightenment” (advised by Martha Feldman) under a Whiting Dissertation Fellowship, and winning a Stuart Tave Teaching Fellowship to teach a course on Music and Enlightenment in Europe. From 2012-14 he served as Visiting Assistant Professor of Music History in the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

At SIUE, Greenwood teaches music history core courses for undergraduate and graduate music majors, graduate courses on music research and writing, world music, and advanced history and theory courses. He helped design two interdisciplinary courses: Cultural History of Popular Music (with Cory Willmott, Anthropology) and Vikings, Myth, and Music (with Douglas Simms, Germanic Studies). Greenwood has also introduced a new three-semester music history core curriculum. He serves as a College of Arts and Science representative on the University Honors Advisory Council, and teaches a regular freshman honors seminar he designed on Sound, Community, and Citizenship. He is also advisory faculty in the CAS International Studies Program.

Passionate about relationships between teaching, performance, and history, Greenwood served as Artistic Advisor to the Newberry Consort for their annual series concert of Scottish music “My Heart’s in the Highlands.” In 2014, he was an invited colloquium series speaker and seminar teacher at the University of South Carolina School of Music, with an archival research residency jointly sponsored by the Ernest F. Hollings Special Collections Library. Recently he has presented his research at the 2017 Society for Ethnomusicology Annual Meeting in Denver (also chairing a panel on Music that Makes Communities), American Musicological Society Midwest (2017), Periods and Waves: An Interdisciplinary Conference on Sound and History (Stony Brook University, 2016), and the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (2015 and 2016, and organizing a panel of international speakers on Performance and Scottish Musical Culture). Greenwood currently serves on the Graduate Education Committee of the American Musicological Society (2017-20) and previously served as Member-at-Large of the Eighteenth-Century Scottish Studies Society up to 2014. He has given invited talks at Harvard University, the Center for Teaching Excellence at the University of Chicago, and delivered papers at the Annual Meeting of the American Musicological Society (Milwaukee 2014 and New Orleans 2012). He is an active baritone with the Bach Society of St. Louis chorus, and was an invited speaker for the Opera Theatre of St. Louis’s production of Verdi’s Rigoletto (2019).
