Juan Chattah is Associate Professor of Music Theory at University of Miami. His research concerns two widely different areas of knowledge: the application of models drawn from cognition, linguistics, and critical theory to the analysis of film music; and the exploration of innovative pedagogical paradigms informed by methodological advances in non-music-related disciplines. Recent publications in music theory pedagogy include Aural Skills in Context (Oxford University Press, 2013). Recent publications on film music include David Shire’s The Conversation: A Film Score Guide (Rowman and Littlefield, 2015), and “Film Music as Embodiment” in Embodied Cognition and Cinema (Leuven University Press, 2015).
