Beyond the articles you might find using Omni, the following databases provide more direct access to scholarly articles. 

For more detailed searching, and/or for more obscure topics, try searching across the full text through these databases:

  • JSTOR
    • full text collection of ejournals, searchable across all the full text; you can also limit to music journals
  • Periodicals Archive Online
    • another full text collection of ejournals, searchable across all the full text; you can also limit to music journals

Think outside the box, you may find journal literature in other databases. E.g,
