Founded in 1998, the Popular Music Interest Group is dedicated to promoting the scholarly study of popular music through methods including musical analysis and theory. Our goals include:
• Ensuring academic recognition for popular music research
• Encouraging more scholars of music theory to engage popular repertoires
• Encouraging scholars of popular music to make effective use of musical analysis and theory

On our Humanities Commons site, we rely on our members to help edit this resource — this cooperation will help continually improve the presence of popular music in our classrooms and scholarship. Many thanks!

    A graduate student of mine has been working on building a website for assisting pop music analysis. We have created a survey intended to garner some feedback about how different pop music scholars approach analysis so that we can gain some insights as to what would be valuable to the greatest number of individuals. The survey should take 5-15 minutes (depending on the amount of detail you provide) and we would be more than grateful for your responses. In addition, given the early stage of the site prototype, your (optional) feedback about the website itself would help carve out its future!  We greatly appreciate your feedback. Hope everyone is keeping well!
