This course is designed to increase knowledge of the history and traditions of Western art music. A primary goal of the course is to
develop greater skill in active listening. While the focus of the course is the European classical tradition from 1600 to the present,
discussions will also include excursions into world music, film music, folk music of various cultures, and American traditions, to provide
a greater appreciation of the larger musical world. This course is for students who are not music majors.
