MUSI 301 - Doing Music History

4.00 credit hours
In this course, we will hone research, critical reading, and writing skills as we explore the music of the past. Through a series of case studies, we will examine important musical historical moments as models for our own historical research. Additionally, through intensive listening sessions, we will encounter musical works long considered key to understanding historic music traditions. Throughout, we will investigate questions such as: What are the tools used to create a music history? Do we evaluate the usefulness of historical sources? And, how does knowledge of music's histories inform our contemporary musicianship?

Prerequisite(s): MUSI 258 .
