When professor Bartlette asks a question in Analytical Techniques

Professor Christopher Bartlette is the one and only single best person/musician/teacher/music theorist you can meet. I entered Binghamton University hoping to study trumpet performance, and I was so determined- and guess what? I betrayed my old dream half way and became a music theorist because I met the most amazing teacher in the world. Every student at Binghamton University who took his class would agree that this guy is the best teacher they’ve ever had.

He teaches an advanced level music theory class in the spring semester called Analytical Techniques, where he introduces Schenkerian analysis, Phrase Rhythm Analysis, Schematas… (it’s like I can hear the sounds of people clicking the “close page” button. I promise, go take his class, you’ll love it and can’t help turning into a complete nerd, I know I did.)

Whenever he asks a question in the class, the 4 students would fight our a**es off. Hey, it’s a good sign, we’re dedicated, we care, okay???
