James Bungert (MA, theory, 2006) finds much success

James Bungert, who studied at University of Iowa for his Masters degree in music theory (2004-2006), has recently had a spate of impressive accomplishments. His article “Bach and the Patterns of Transformation” (after Laurence Dreyfus’s Bach and the Patterns of Invention (1996)), is slated for publication in Music Theory Spectrum in fall of 2015 (37/2). That’s the premier theory journal in the field! James, who is at the tail end of his Ph.D. in music theory at University of Wisconsin at Madison, is also thrilled to have landed a tenure-track job teaching music theory and music history at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana, to begin Fall 2014. Congratulations, Jim, we’re proud!
