Timothy Noonan is a Teaching Faculty I in Music History & Literature and serves as the Music Department’s Graduate Advisor. Dr. Noonan taught at UWM from 1987 to 1989. He then completed his Ph.D. in musicology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1996, returning to UWM in Fall 1996. His dissertation on structural aspects of the symphonies of Luigi Boccherini reflects his interest in the instrumental music of the late eighteenth century and, more broadly, in music of the Classical and Romantic periods. Dr. Noonan lives in Oak Creek with his wife Jill and their two sons.
