Music Studies (MUST)

Courses

MUST 0802. The Art of Listening. 4 Credit Hours.

Are you an active or passive listener? What kind of music do you enjoy? How do you compare different musical styles, and what qualities make one performance different from another? Be challenged to rethink your entire conception of music by focusing on how to listen to music to deepen your appreciation of what you are hearing, and to ponder the importance of music in your life and to society. You will not be required to become a performer yourself, but you will become a more discriminating consumer of music through attendance at live concerts in the local area, by observation of in-class performances, rehearsals, and music lessons, and through guided listening exercises in and outside of class. Repertoire selected from Classical, Jazz, Broadway, and World Music will engage your intellectual and emotional response as a concert-goer, listener, researcher, critic, and communicator. NOTE: This course fulfills the Arts (GA) requirement for students under GenEd and Arts (AR) for students under Core.

MUST 0804. Shakespeare and Music. 3 Credit Hours.

What is it about the Bard of Stratford-on-Avon? From the concert hall to the stage and silver screen, no other author's works have inspired more adaptations than those of William Shakespeare. In this new century, as the "cult of originality" continues to grow at an exponential rate and celebrity is sought as an end in itself (see Hilton, Paris), why have the works of a man whose very identity is shrouded in mystery remained so popular? This course will explore "Macbeth," "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Romeo and Juliet," and their adaptation by composers and choreographers. Students will then get a chance to "bend the Bard" on their own! NOTE: This course fulfills the Arts (GA) requirement for students under GenEd and Arts (AR) for students under Core.

Why do we enjoy listening to music? Besides our own enjoyment of it, what is the purpose of music---not only for us today, but also throughout history? What is so important to humans about music that it exists in every culture on earth, regardless of time or place? How has Western music developed over the centuries? What does music tell us about ourselves? What words should you use to describe the music you are hearing? Explore these and other questions while you are actively involved, participating in listening exercises, viewing video recordings of concerts, operas, ballets, films, and staged productions, and attending at least one live concert.
