"The Early Music Institute at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music provides a comprehensive program in the study of historical performance on original instruments of music before ca.1800, supplementing performance with research and theoretical studies, leading to degrees at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. The faculty consists of internationally known performers who specialize in the performance of early repertory. The EMI is fortunate in enjoying university-wide academic support from disciplines as diverse as musicology, computer studies, literature, medieval studies, and fine arts.
The program includes private lessons in voice and on historical instruments along with extensive solo and ensemble performance opportunities. Academic courses are designed to provide an understanding of the many practical and theoretical areas essential to performance of medieval, renaissance, baroque, and classical music (e.g. improvisation, ornamentation, articulation, basso continuo, solmization, historical notation, bibliography, organology, etc.). Research is encouraged, and opportunities for research are provided both in academic courses and in elective special projects. The faculty of the Early Music Institute makes every effort to accommodate a student's specialized interests without losing sight of a broader commitment to artistic excellence and scholarship.
