MUSI 3160 Pop Music and Genre I

The Popular Music Periods and Genre Studiy I course raises the following questions: 1) How do social lives and musical cultures interrrelate? 2) How have globally commercialized musics emerged over time? This course introduces students in the Popular Music major to a variety of musical and social features related to specific music genres within the global music market. Through an ethnomusicological method, both lectures and examples from a diverse musical repertoire present the social values for music that frequently circulate between Western and non-Western musical contexts. Students’ participation in musical analysis and use of social theory will strengthen their understanding of the role of musical style and related social attitudes within the global order.
