MUSC 271 - Popular Music in the United States

Spring (4) Katz, Murchison, Preston, Rasmussen, Staff (ALV, GER 4A,5)

This course addresses popular musical expression in the continental United States from a historical and cultural perspective.  In addition to exploring representative types of music such as traditional, folk, sacred and dance music, ragtime, blues, jazz, rock and country as well as musical traditions associated with immigrant groups and global music networks, students will have the opportunity to examine these musical traditions critically by focusing on particular eras, regions, themes or groups of artists.
