Ethnomusicology query

We have a large recording industry program here at Middle Tennessee State
University, and I have several students who are interested in pursuing
graduate studies in ethnomusicology. Most are simply taking some
anthropology courses as electives or out of general interest, or are
minors in Anthropology. I have been asked for advice on "good schools"
with graduate programs or faculty with interests in ethnomusicology.
Also, I've been asked what courses in anthropology would be most helpful
in pursuing this type of graduate career. Despite a (long ago) background
in a few jazz bands, this field of study is WAY outside my field of
knowledge. Can anyone out there in Anthro-L land give me a hand with some
suggestions about good programs or some contacts working in this area?

Thanks in advance. You can respond directly to or
to the list as you deem appropriate.
