Associate Professor, Music & Associate Dean
Office: Riedl 206E
Dr. Tovey specializes in historical research in music education and, more specifically, multi-cultural music education. He conducted his research in Mexico for eighteen years and has published studies in the Bulletin of the Council for Research in Music Education and the Journal of Historical Research in Music Education. In the past year, he contributed five entries for the new edition of the Amerigrove Dictionary of American Music—the leading English reference source on the history of American music. Because of his new position as associate dean, Dr. Tovey’s research has been put to the side until he can once again get involved with music education. He is an organist who is currently involved with musical performances and choral productions. Dr. Tovey does not work with students in his research because the only music classes offered on the Mansfield campus are beginning music courses. His research also requires being very fluent in Spanish.
