Hello, my name is Trevor de Clercq. Currently, I am Assistant Professor in the department of Recording Industry in the College of Media and Entertainment at Middle Tennessee State University, where I coordinate the musicianship curriculum and teach coursework in audio theory and music technology. In the past, I have taught at Ithaca College, Hofstra University, Adelphi University, the Eastman School of Music, and the University of Rochester. I have a PhD (2012) and an MA (2008) in music theory from the Eastman School of Music, an AAS (2004) in electronics engineering technology from the Cleveland Institute of Electronics, an MM (2000) in music technology from New York University, and a BA (1996) in music theory and composition from Cornell University. My research interests include popular music, music perception and cognition, empirical musicology (especially corpus methods), and sound recording. Here is a copy of my CV, as of July 17, 2017.

N.B. Edited mp3 files are available on this web site to illustrate particular analytical points as well as for ear training purposes. Many of these mp3s are copyrighted material, but I believe my use of them here constitutes “fair use” since the mp3s are short excerpts only and used for an academic purpose. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you disagree with my definition of “fair use” and wish to have any musical examples removed from this web site.
