This course explores music of selected periods of Western European culture. Emphasis is placed on how to listen to music. No prior knowledge of music is necessary. Students will be introduced to major composers and music of each period. Discussion will focus on the characteristics of each musical period and how they are reflected in music, the aesthetic qualities of each work discussed, and the lives of the composers and the times in which they lived. Three lecture hours per week. Attendance at performances/concerts outside of class is required. Required in the Music minor.
