Jennifer Smith
She previously served as Visiting Assistant Professor of Music Theory at the University of Florida and as a graduate teaching assistant at Florida State University and Bowling Green State University. While at Florida State, she was appointed as a Teaching Associate in the Program for Instructional Excellence, where she facilitated professional development workshops, assisted with university-wide teaching assistant training, and served on the committee for the Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award.

Dr. Smith’s research interests include Schenkerian analysis, Baroque textual expression, phrase structure, form, and music theory pedagogy. Her current research focuses on the influence of tonal structure and motivic enlargements on the underlying narrative progression in J. S. Bach’s multi-movement vocal works, and she has presented aspects of this work at several regional conferences, including Music Theory Southeast, the South Central Society for Music Theory, and the Texas Society for Music Theory. She has also served as an editorial assistant for Music Theory Online (2008–2010).
