MUSC 1100 V11 - Introduction to Music History: African American Musical Traditions and Jazz
Summer Session I, May 30 - June 29, 2023
Online: TWTh, 09:00AM - 12:00PM

This course presents a survey of music history, with a focus on developing the skills of thinking and writing critically about music. Students will learn to listen in a focused way and relate what they hear to issues of musical “meaning” and general culture. Students will learn some technical vocabulary that will help them describe or advocate for any music they encounter, and they will apply this vocabulary to examples throughout the semester, for instance, a Beethoven Symphony or a Duke Ellington jazz arrangement. Sections may have different focuses in terms of geography or chronology.
