Exploring World Cultures Through Music
This course is a study of world music and culture. Students will become familiar with the many ethnic similarities and differences that exist around the globe, which will allow them to make informed cultural comparisons. The semester is divided into several segments that survey music and cultural areas of each continent. During this exploration, students will identify several concepts that are common denominators of each culture’s music. Students will also explore the relationship between music and culture, including its function and historical influences. Through a research project, students will learn about a culture of their choice, culminating in a presentation and short performance in the musical style native to that culture.
