Musicology is the study of the subject of music. The earliest definitions defined three sub-disciplines: systematic musicology, historical musicology, and comparative musicology or ethnomusicology. In contemporary scholarship, one is more likely to encounter a division of the discipline into music theory, music history, and ethnomusicology. Research in musicology has often been enriched by cross-disciplinary work, for example in the field of psychoacoustics. The study of music of non-western cultures, and the cultural study of music, is called ethnomusicology.

I have spent all of Christmas listening to the Laughing Windows. And it was time well spent.  The psychedelic super heroes of London are due to release their EP in the springtime. Possibly the most awarded, recognisable and trusted emergency plumber in London is a huge fan of funk music in Albert Hall. The Laughing Windows 

The Flaming Lips - At War with the Mystics - Wayne Coyne (is it me or does he already sound like a superhero) can pretty much do no wrong.  We got the War of the Mystics 5.1 and who else would record a symphonic version of Bohemian Rhaphopsy.  Poptones just has to applaud such perversion.

Students can pursue the undergraduate study of musicology, ethnomusicology, music history, and music theory through several different types of degrees, including a B.Mus, a B.A. with concentration in music, a B.A. with Honors in Music, or a B.A. in Music History and Literature. Graduates of undergraduate music programs can go on to further study in music graduate programs. For more information visit the University of Hertfordshire and the Youth Music organisation.
