Music Theory & Analysis (MTA). International Journal of the Dutch-Flemish Society for Music Theory

Music Theory & Analysis (MTA) is a peer-reviewed international journal focusing on recent developments in music theory and analysis. It has a special interest in the interplay between theory and analysis, as well as in the interaction between European and North-American scholarship. Open to a wide variety of repertoires, approaches, and methodologies, the journal aims to stimulate dialogue between diverse traditions within the field.

Each issue of the journal will contain six sections or a selection thereof: (1) an invited keynote article, (2) max. 3 articles, possibly grouped in a thematic dossier, (3) analytical vignettes, (4) one article addressing aspects of teaching music theory and/or analysis, (5) contributions offering a (partial) translation and contextualization of an important music theoretical source, and (6) book reviews, also covering their educational use.

MTA is the official journal of the Dutch-Flemish Society for Music Theory (Vereniging voor Muziektheorie). It is the successor to the Dutch Journal of Music Theory (Tijdschrift voor Muziektheorie).
