UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MUSIC Spring Semester 2008 Music 130, Sections 101, 102, 103: Survey of Music Literature Instructor: Frank Latino, E-mail: flatino@umd.edu Teaching Assistant: Jessica Abbazio, E-mail: jabbazio@umd.edu We all hear music on a daily basis—either by choice (listening to a CD or songs on our iPods, playing video games, etc.) or not by choice (hearing background music while watching a movie, shopping, or even waiting at a doctor’s office.) In this course, you will expand your existing music-listening skills while acquiring new tools for understanding what you hear. You will develop the ability to distinguish elements of timbre, rhythm, melody, texture, harmony, form, and style in music from various cultural traditions and eras, and issues of context, social function, and gender will be illuminated by specific compositions. One of our goals is for each of you—regardless of your musical background—to develop new ways of listening to music, along with the capacity to appreciate and describe what you hear. Another aim of this course is to widen your awareness of the rich diversity of musical styles in the world around us. Textbook and CDs The text for this course is Music as a Multicultural Experience , revised 4 th edition with accompanying CD, by Shelley Davis (Dubuque, Iowa: Kendall/Hunt Publishing Co., 2006). The book may be purchased at the University Book Center in the Stamp Student Union building. Lectures and Discussions Lecture classes meet in PAC, Room 2200, on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 9:00 – 9:50 A.M.
