MUS 101 - Music Appreciation
Intended for the student with no formal training in music, this course introduces the basic elements: rhythm, melody, harmony, genre, form. The remainder of the course investigates classical or art music of the Western tradition. Important genres (symphony, opera, oratorio, string quartet, art song) and composers are studied in historical context. Music is studied as a cultural force: as indicative of a political, social, ideological, or aesthetic climate. Non-western music and popular music are briefly discussed.
