Teaching since 2008
Daniel Rogers began his university teaching career in 2008 teaching Elements of Music and Music Appreciation to non-music majors at Brigham Young University. Later, while completing his Ph.D., he taught courses in Music History for undergraduate and graduate music students at Indiana University.
His primary research interests include early music, especially that of the Renaissance era, as well as the intellectual history of composition. Secondary research areas include the history of opera, especially in the early seventeenth century, and American music, with particular attention on the activities of composers before World War I.
Daniel’s philosophy toward teaching is defined by his enthusiasm to learn and by his capacity to transmit that enthusiasm to his students. Both are vital for effective teaching. As a teacher, his ultimate goal is to challenge his students to draw their own conclusions about a particular topic through diligent study and effective assimilation rather than to merely regurgitate the conclusions of others. He believes that each student has a unique point of view that, if nurtured, will enhance the learning experience of his or her classmates as well as enrich academic discourse. He believes that this approach, a process of data assimilation, reflection, and criticism, improves a student’s capacity in any discipline.
