Mantle Hood

Mantle Hood (June 24, 1918 – July 31, 2005) was an American ethnomusicologist. Among other areas, he specialized in studying gamelan music from Indonesia. Hood pioneered, in the 1950s and 1960s, a new approach to the study of music, and the creation at UCLA of the first American university program devoted to ethnomusicology. He was known for a suggestion, somewhat novel at the time, that his students actually learn to play the music they were studying.

Famous quotes containing the words hood and/or mantle:

    She stood breast high amid the corn,
    Clasp’d by the golden light of morn,
    —Thomas Hood (1799–1845)

    There are a sort of men whose visages
    Do cream and mantle like a standing pond,
    And do a willful stillness entertain,
    With purpose to be dressed in an opinion
    Of wisdom, gravity, profound conceit,
    As who should say, “I am Sir Oracle,
    And when I ope my lips let no dog bark!”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
