Emily H. Green is an assistant professor of music at Mason.  Her research focuses on the strategies of music printing and marketing in 18th and 19th century Western Europe.  She is particularly interested in title pages and dedications and attempts to discover what they communicated to their readers, both in the marketplace and in the home. This exploration visits interdisciplinary areas of inquiry.  Her work has been published in  Current Musicology, Beethoven Studien, Eighteenth-Century Music, and The Journal of Musicological Research, as well as The New York Times and NewMusicBox. Green is currently preparing a monograph on musical dedications and a co-edited volume, with Catherine Mayes, on musical consumerism in the 19th century. She maintains a specialty in performance practice as a keyboardist on modern and historical instruments.  She engages with a wide range of repertoire, from Froberger to Schubert to Louis Andriessen, and has given concerts as a solo, collaborative, and ensemble player on harpsichord, early and modern pianos, and synthesizers. Her other teaching areas of specialty include feminist and queer theory; pop, hip-hop, and music video; and post-war American music. She has previously taught at Yale University’s Department of Music, the Peabody Conservatory, the Catholic University of America, and American University.
