This treatise presents a four-year curriculum plan for incorporating new music in the undergraduate degree. The aim is to address the apparent deficit of modern solo violin repertoire in the applied lesson setting at the undergraduate level and the lack of interest and/or time spent in performing this music. Focusing specifically on solo violin repertoire written since 1975 by American composers, this treatise takes a pedagogical approach in examining several pieces and their associated techniques that should be studied throughout the four years. Upon graduating, students will not only be able to handle new music, but will also develop a greater appreciation for the music of this era. Students will also become more familiar with the new music culture that has developed in the United States through the examination of works by American composers. In addition, this treatise discusses opportunities for involvement in new music outside of the applied lesson setting.
A Treatise submitted to the College of Music in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Music.
