UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MUSIC Spring 2010 Music 130: Survey of Music Literature Instructor: Paul Covey, E-mail: [email protected] My TA, who is responsible for all grading and inquiries related to grading, is ______________________________. Her e-mail address is: ______________________. Throughout history, in every part of the world, human beings have valued music, whether as a favorite pastime, an indispensable aspect of ritual, a satisfying avenue of emotional expression, an important aspect of intellectual life, or any combination of these things. Today, we all hear music on a daily basis—either by choice or not by choice. 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 form and style in music from various cultural traditions and eras, while issues of context, social function, and gender will be discussed. 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 5 th edition with accompanying CD, by Shelley Davis (Dubuque, Iowa: Kendall/Hunt Publishing Co., 2008). The book may be purchased at the Maryland Book Exchange, in College Park, and/or the University Book Center. Before you buy one, make sure the CD is in it.
