DHSI 2018 Music Encoding Course (June 11-15, 2018)

DHSI 2018 Music Encoding Course (June 11-15, 2018)

It's my great pleasure to share this excellent opportunity from two of my colleagues teaching MEI (and MEI's applications in digital music scholarship) at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute this Summer 2018. More information below!

Would you like to harness your computer to conduct corpus-wide musical analyses?

Are you interested in digital music editing and publishing?

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI), the world-premier initiative for students and faculty seeking training in digital tools, is offering a course entitled Music Encoding Fundamentals and their Applications this summer.


This exciting new course offers an introduction to the theory and practice of encoding electronic musical scores. It is designed for students, early career researchers and senior academics who are interested in a music-encoding project, or for those who would like to better understand the philosophy, theory, and practicalities of encoding notated music. Moreover, it will consider ways of incorporating sound and text files with encoded music notation. Participants should have a basic knowledge of how to read music, but no prior experience with coding is assumed.

Full-tuition awards available!

The course will run on June 11-15, 2018, on the beautiful campus of the University of Victoria.
