Music 10A: Music Appreciation, Spring 2014
Time: Tuesday and Thursday, 9:00 AM-10:15 AM
Location: Music 176 (Concert Hall)
General survey of Western music focusing on recorded and live performances. In this course significant works of the human imagination and intellect are discussed, as students encounter a wide range of music from the European Baroque period to American music of the 20th century. The course is designed to enable students to understand music as an art form within its cultural context, primarily in Western Europe and the United
States. Students will approach music as a form of expression that reflects personal creativity, the relationship of music to other forms of human expression, including art, architecture, gender, philosophy, religion, and politics, as well as social, political, religious, and cultural change. Students will experience music through audio and video recordings, and attend concerts outside of the classroom.
