Shaugn O'Donnell, Ph.D.

I'm a guitarist and academic in New York City, currently serving as Music Department Chair at The City College and on the music theory faculty at the CUNY Graduate Center.

My research interests include post-tonal analysis, transformation theory, and popular music, particularly rock improvisation and psychedelia. As an active musician, performing and composing, guitar remains the center of my creative universe.
