MUSIC 008: Studies in the Literature of Music

Edward Smaldone

(Submission #26)

Course Description

This is a Variable Topics course.

1. In all cases, data and evidence are construed and knowledge acquired by developing vocabulary specific to the study of musical literature in all its forms, and then applying that knowledge to the particular literature of the course.

2. In such courses musical examples are examined in the context of the social, economic and cultural history, placing the study of music within a liberal arts curriculum and the larger society.

3. All of the music covered in any of these courses would be literature that qualifies as appropriate material for a course in "Appreciating the Arts."
