THOUSAND MILES FROM HOME EXPLORING MUSIC IN CHANGING WORLD~ Music symbolizes a people's way of life and expresses the most deeply felt aspects of human experience. It is the language of remembrance, celebration, courtship, protest, and prayer. In this class we will explore the wide variety of musical traditions in North America, many of which originated in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Nowhere in the world is there a greater range of musical styles. We will listen to and write about folk, classical, and popular music and closely examine the cultural contexts of music making in a multiethnic society. Students will be expected to research and write thoughtfully about music, give oral presentations, attend concerts, and participate in occasional "hands-on" activities such as drumming. There will be a field trip to an ethnic restaurant.
