Janice Haworth

Associate Professor - Music

Janice Haworth is an Associate Professor in the Department of Music and teaches Music Education, Theory, and World Music.  She received her Ph.D. in Music Education from the University of Florida.  In 2010 she received a Fulbright Scholar Grant to teach and study in the West African country of Guinea.  Her research project was to learn to play the Guinea drums and rhythms and to create a notation system that the Guinean people could use to musically notate their traditional rhythms.  She brought back 24 large Guinean drums and they get used quite a lot in her classes and in community drumming activities.  If you hear drums, come join us!
