MUH 6935: Music from Monk to Higdon
Dr. Laura Dallman
This course is dedicated to collaboratively listening to and studying a diverse array of musical artists that have had formidable careers in classical and popular music after 1950. There is a focus on collective, but not group, research and presentation. These skills will be cultivated in a low-pressure atmosphere and primarily within class meetings, not outside of class time. One musical artist will be spotlighted each week. Students will also choose a musical artist as the basis for an individual, semester-long project that mimics our activities in the classroom.
