32-1610 Music Through the Ages, from Chant to R&B


Course examines music from early times to the present day, giving special attention to the body of works typically identified as Western art music. It covers a wide variety of music–including genres that range from Gregorian chant to R&B–and situates this music meaningfully with the help of historical information, cultural context, musical vocabulary, and critical concepts. At the conclusion of this course, successful students will listen to a wide variety of musical genres knowledgeably and perceptively, and write about them confidently. They will furthermore be able to discuss music, not simply as humanly organized sound, but as a set of practices that reflect, shape, and organize their social and cultural contexts.
