Personal Statement



Professional Experience

Prior to his appointment at the College of Idaho, Dr. Gades taught music theory and aural skills classes at Florida State University and the University of Nebraska. His dissertation research considered the intersection of music, text, and image in William Bolcom’s setting of William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience. His research interests include the music of living composers, music/text relationships, and musical narrative.



He has presented papers at several theory conferences around the U.S. and has contributed to a collection of essays in Analyzing the Music of Living Composers (and Others) with an analysis of Joan Tower’s viola concerto, Purple Rhapsody.
