MUS 112 Music Cultures of the World 4cr

This course is an introductory survey of selected music cultures of the world. Music will be surveyed as a functional activity in people's lives, as a symbol of historical or national identity, and as a form of artistic expression. Models for analyzing music will be presented that demonstrate the meanings and significances of music in various societies. There will be a participatory element through "hands-on" experiences with African drums.
