Introduction to Musicology: A Survey of the Fields, Systematic & Historical, of Musical Knowledge & Research

By Glen Haydon | Go to book overview

limited resources to do creditable work in the graduate field.

In the early stages of graduate training, research exercises of modest scope will give the student experience in discovering, evaluating, and defining the problem; in applying typical research procedures used in experimental research, survey, historical research, prognostic research, and philosophical analysis; in making a bibliography; in collecting, analyzing, and classifying data; and in the final report of investigations. The subjects chosen for investigation should be serious, properly oriented to the general field of musicology, and provocative of thought. Mere accumulation of data is of little value unless motivated by a significant idea. The master's thesis need not be a contribution to knowledge, though it should be a genuine test of the student's ability to do creative research while maintaining an objective attitude. The doctor's dissertation, however, must be a real contribution to knowledge.

In assisting the graduate student in his program of research, the adviser in charge of the work should carefully weigh the student's special interests and educational background. He should guide the student in his work so as to avoid unnecessary waste of time and energy. To this end he should see that the problem is a significant one, carefully defined and delimited, susceptible to scientific treatment, and within the student's capacity. Though he should be ready to give counsel as needed at all stages of the work, the adviser should take care not to deprive the student of the main responsibility for the work. By precept and example he may stimulate the student and guide him to a successful completion of his task.
