Music 130 – Introduction to the Art of Music University of Illinois | School of Music | Spring 2011 Instructor: Dr. Joseph E. Jones [email protected] MB 4004, by appointment TAs: Hilary Morris ([email protected]) Mike Siletti ([email protected]) Alex Woller ([email protected]) Course Objectives : This course introduces the stylistic features of Western music, focusing on what is often broadly referred to as “classical” music of various time periods. For the most part, we will adopt a chronological, composer-oriented approach that explores the contexts in which these works were created and also considers their influence and reception. Of central importance is the development of your listening skills and musical vocabulary, which will equip you with the tools to discuss any piece of music intelligently. It is hoped that such an approach will deepen your appreciation of all musics and enhance your awareness of its role in our lives today. Required Text : Listen , 6 th ed. e-book with 6-CD set by Kerman, Tomlinson (ISBN: 0-312-47468-7) Additional listening examples will be placed on audio reserve, accessible through the Music and Performing Arts Library at http://www.library.uiuc.edu/ereserves/querycourse.asp.

Lecture Attendance : Regular attendance at lectures is simply the best way for you to know what will be covered on the exams. To receive credit for attendance, you must check in with your T.A. at the upper level of the auditorium before lecture begins. Students arriving late may be counted as tardy, and two such late arrivals will count as one absence. Eight total absences over the course of the semester are allowed, with no prior approval or documentation needed. Nine or more absences will result in a zero for the attendance portion of the final grade (10%) .

    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.
