Listening Assignments: Our listening assignments for this term will be available on the course website itself. Course Description: This course introduces students to the broad and rich topic of American music through brief explorations of topics that currently interest faculty in the ASU School of Music. After an introduction to general music terms and concepts and a brief survey of some highlights in American music, students are given a choice of which special topics units they will study. Each of these units is taught by a music historian at ASU. Because this unique online class features fifteen different modules on special topics created by seven different instructors, the administrator reserves the right to refer you to the specific teacher who built a module if you have questions regarding that module’s material. The course concludes with a series of units that offer students the opportunity to reflect critically on what they have learned. No previous musical experience or knowledge of music history is required.
