About the SMT

The Society for Music Theory (SMT) promotes music theory as a scholarly and pedagogical discipline. We include among our members not only teachers and students, but also non-academics who have a deep interest in the field. All those who enjoy engaging with music theory are invited to join our welcoming community of musicians who are passionate about this subject.

Allen Forte

We are sad to report the passing of SMT Honorary Member Allen Forte (1926-2014), eminent music theorist, pedagogue, first President of SMT, and mentor and dear friend to many members of our Society.
