MUSIC HISTORY ASSOCIATION
Welcome to the MUSIC HISTORY ASSOCIATION webpage, a forum dedicated to the study of the history of music. The Association’s primary goal and purpose is the gathering and sharing of historical information concerning the history of music. The organization is a Cyber Roundtable that provides a nerve center for people interested in the history of music from a North American perspective. The mutual sharing of knowledge is encouraged as a means of broadening this exciting field of study. Internet links are available and sources for research materials. The Association’s data banks and network of contacts provide unique and valuable information to professional and amateur historians, musicologists, scholars, students, history buffs, and anyone else interested in learning from the past.
Participants benefit from the organization’s stimulating think-tank atmosphere and lively exchange of opinions. Its laboratory of ideas, consisting of objective and subjective intellectual exchanges and exercises, help advance the general study of the history of music. Participants are encouraged to share with the Association any music related information and knowledge, including: photographs, films, books, drawings, manuscripts, sheet music, illustrations, documents, memorabilia, souvenirs, antiques, vintage instruments, data, statistics, facts, stories, anecdotes, rumors, tidbits, opinions, questions, ideas, bibliographies, audio/video recordings, etc. In addition, special emphasis and focus is directed to field research and reports, historical antecedents and archeological studies. The Association also devotes much attention to the investigation, interpretation, commentary, and translation, of submissions regarding the lives of common and prominent artists, musicians, performers, music industry pioneers, builders, entrepreneurs, innovators, technicians, and inventors who helped transform the art of music.
Information is collected, recorded, shared, and disseminated via the Internet, telephone, fax, postal service, and in person. All viewpoints and contributions of information and knowledge are welcome.
The Music History Association wishes to pay homage to the many associations, organizations, and medical researchers dedicated to the understanding, educating, informing, researching, rehabilitating, and curing of hearing disorders. Musicians, in particular, should better appreciate the miracle of hearing; it being one of the delicate human senses that must be protected and cherished.
