Musicology

Musicology is the academic study of music. Musicologists may study quite a wide range of subjects. Some, for instance, may specialise in English Tudor church music, others in the history of musical notation and others in the development of the flute. The academic study of music other than western classical music (for example the music of the Mbuti[?] pygmies[?] in Africa) is generally called ethnomusicology.
