My name is Bryn Hughes, and I teach music theory at the The University of Lethbridge.

My research interests include music cognition, music theory pedagogy, and popular music analysis. My dissertation involved an investigation of harmonic expectation in twelve-bar blues progressions. For more information, please feel free to peruse my CV.

I once aspired to be a jazz trumpeter. Right now I mostly play bad piano reductions for my students. I enjoy playing hockey. I root for the Toronto teams, which means I’m disappointed with professional sports most of the time. I have a beautiful wife Jillian, a daugther Trudy, and two pugs named Vernon and Prudence.

Feel free to email me or follow me on twitter. Once in a blue moon, I’ll write a blog post.
