MUSH005: Discovering Music

Credits: 0.5 units/5 hours
5 Evaluations, No Projects, 2 Progress Tests

Music is often described as a universal language because it exists in all cultures. This course approaches music from a global perspective. Students will learn to notice cultural influences on music while exploring the common human ideas that music addresses. They will analyze the musical traditions of Western Europe, Asia, India, Africa, Latin America, South America, and the United States. They will learn about the significance of music from multiple perspectives: as an art, a science, and a business. This course requires students to listen to over 50 pieces of music. All the music in this course is available using the individual links to online YouTube videos found in each of the lessons.

Available in print or online
