Alicja Jarzębska - Polish musicologist. She studied musicology at the Jagiellonian University (1959-64) and the music theory at the Music Academy in Cracow (1960-65). In 1964-65 she worked at the PWM Edition in Cracow and then in 1965-71 as an assistant at the Music Academy. From 1971 she is a member of the staff at the Institute of Musicology at the Jagiellonian University.  She received her PhD in 1979 and in 2003 became the Professor of Arts. From 2000 to 2008 she was the vice-headmaster and the headmaster of the Institute of Musicology.

She participated in scholarships in Great Britain (Oxford, London), USA (Bufallo), Italy (Rome, Bologne, Cremona), Germany (Regensburg) and Austria (Salzburg).

She has given lectures at the universities in Bufallo (The State University of New York), Rome (La Sapienza), Regensburg (Institut für Musikwissenschaft, Universität Regensburg), Salzburg (Institut für Musikwissenschaft, Universität Salzburg) and she has also given cycles of lectures in Poznań, Cracow and Warsaw.

She is a member of the Arts Committee in Polish Academy of Sciences, member of the editorial boards of "Studies in Paderewski, "Musicology Today" and "Polski Rocznik Muzykologiczny", and from 2003 member of the Qualifying Committee in the Polish Composers' Union.

The main areas of her interest are: history of XXth century music, music theory and cognitive musicology. In the book Strawiński. Myśl i muzyka (nomination to the Długosz Award; the Ministry of National Education and Sports Award) she proposed a new interpretation of Strawiński's thougth and ideas on music (this interpretation was based on a dialog between the philosophy of "new music" and XIXth century artistic ideas), new periodisation of Strawiński's output and a completely new method of music analysis inspired by cognitive theories (she introduced the term "parton" for the most basic constructive element).
