MUS-1015 Meet the Masters

3 credits

Prerequisite: None.

The goal of this course is to demystify and make accessible the world of classical music. We will develop some basic ideas and terminology with which we can discuss and share ideas about music. We will listen to the music in the context of the lives of the various composers and will use the above ideas and terminology to develop listening skills that will enable us to understand and, consequently, to appreciate and enjoy what we are hearing.
