MUSIC268-01C Music of Latin America (with Staff)

This course is an introductory course dealing with the diverse musical traditions of Latin America, including the role of music in society, ritual, and culture. The result is a comparative study of styles, dances, and instruments, with a certain emphasis given to the development of critical listening skills. Students need access to a computer with Internet sound capabilities. Course subject matter is generally limited to music that has surfaced and developed in Latin America and not as it has developed in the continental United States. Readings will be supplemented by various links as well as the Latin American audio selections available from the Naxos catalogue.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this fall. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions. For more detail on the remote format of a specific course, contact the instructor.
