History Through Music - Course Description
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
In our History through Music block, we study the parallel historical development of human consciousness and music. We analyze music through the phenomena of melody, harmony, rhythm, and tone color (timbre) in composition; we achieve this through in-depth listening, discussion, and textural analysis of music in the Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern eras. Examples of these eras, along with listening examples of World Music are also covered in an in-class Music Journal, which is then assembled into an organized block book. The students are required to create their own listening journal entry on a composition of their choosing. A class music project is usually planned for the final day of the block.
