MUSC 102 - Music Appreciation (3,0) 3 Credits
General Education Course: Humanities-Appreciation of the Arts
Music Appreciation is an introductory course designed to increase the student’s enjoyment and understanding of music. It is rooted in a survey of the history and literature of the evolution of our Western (European) music traditions, integrated with the inclusion of other art, folk and popular music, such as world music, jazz, musical theatre and contemporary music. Students will learn enhanced listening skills with which to experience both recorded and live performances and to approach music as both an intellectual and an emotional activity. Perspectives on music’s historical, sociological, cultural, and biographical contexts will be emphasized. Attendance at live performances is required.
