Abstract: 

For over fifteen years, an optional course in Schenkerian analysis has been offered to the third-year students in the Music Faculty at the Sorbonne. It consists of a one-semester introduction, proposed as a choice within a list of a dozen options that include other disciplines such as paleography, continuo playing, musical informatics, didactics, sociology of music, rock and pop music, etc. Beginning in fall 2010, however, it has been decided that part of the course in Schenkerian analysis would become compulsory for all third-year students.
