Course Description: This course explores the types of music that constitute the soundtrack of our lives. We all experience music every day, but how deeply do we really listen to it? What critical faculties do we employ when we stop to think about our taste in music, and why do we choose to listen to what we do? Active listening, as opposed to passive hearing of music, is a key element in this course. Students develop a range of critical skills that allow them to think conceptually about music and understand and enjoy music at a deeper level. Students acquire a set of tools and a working vocabulary for discussing, describing, and analyzing music. They discuss the music they love and about why, when, and how they choose to listen to it. Students are exposed to a wide range of musical styles and genres, including popular classical, contemporary, jazz, and non-Western. They understand core musical concepts, discriminate aurally between different musical styles according to their musical characteristics, and apply enhanced listening skills to analyze different types of music.
