MUSI 110 - Introduction to Western Classical Music

Formerly “Music Appreciation”. This course will explore Western Art Music (a.k.a. “Classical Music”) in order to better understand how music is constructed, what music means, what social history brought it about, what instruments are used in performance and what this music has in common with other art forms. No previous musical instruction is required. Fundamentals of music will be addressed in class to establish the ability to grasp musical forms, various styles and music history. Music from J. S. Bach to the present day will be heard, compared and, to a limited degree, analyzed. Spring semester. (4 Credits)
