Spring 2018 MUS130 - Introduction to the Art of Music Instructor Dr. Steven Wilson Teaching Assistants Email [email protected] Sarah Catanzaro O ce MB 3036 - [email protected] O ce Hours M 12:00-12:50pm Putu Hiranmayena Meeting 1-1:50pm - [email protected] Hannah Jellen - [email protected] Nolan Vallier - [email protected] Course Overview In this class, we will explore a variety of the musical practices in the Western world. The first half of the semester will cover what is often called "classical" music, focusing primarily on the 18th and 19th centuries. The second half of the course will focus on Western classical music and popular music in the 20th and 21st centuries. Although a large part of the course will cover masterworks of "classical" music, we will also cover some emerging masterpieces of jazz, rock, and other popular styles. Over the course of the semester, we will examine the historic and stylistic trends, composers, performance contexts, and the cultural situations that contributed to the creation of the music. The goal of the course will be to develop and strengthen your skills as music listeners. The focus will be on gaining the tools necessary to comprehend and intelligently discuss music, both foreign and familiar. Ultimately, I hope that you will gain an appreciation of new forms of music, as well as an enhanced level of appreciation of the music that you already enjoy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
