Take me to the Fall Term '00 Time Schedule for Music History and Musicology.

To see what has been added to or changed in Music History and Musicology this week go to What's New This Week.


It is possible for LS&A students to elect a concentration program in music, and this program is described in the LS&A Bulletin. In addition, music courses are frequently elected by LS&A students not concentrating in Music. Courses in Music History/Musicology, Composition, and Music Theory are elected for LS&A credit. Some of these courses can be used in an area distribution plan. LS&A students may elect music PERFORMANCE courses for degree credit, but this credit counts toward the maximum twelve non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward an AB/BS degree or twenty non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward a BGS degree. Courses in Music History/Musicology, Composition, Music Theory, and Performing Arts Technology are listed in the Time Schedule under the School of Music.

The following courses count as LS&A courses for LS&A degree credit.

This introductory course will cover a variety of musical genres from selected cultures around the world. It aims to familiarize students with music sound and music structure, to guide them in listening to music on an analytical level, and to help them appreciate music both as a human activity with social functions, and as artistic expression. The broad cultural areas selected to receive primary focus this semester are Eastern Europe, Africa, Indonesia, India, and North America. The final unit will examine popular music from around the world. Musical genres include those of vocal, instrumental, solo, ensemble, and music as an accompaniment to theater and ritual. Music concepts such as melody, rhythm, texture, form and notation will be introduced. The course generously employs videos and audio tapes to complement its lectures, and will offer students an opportunity to apply skills learned during the term.

Listening will be assigned from the class tapes which accompany the text book, Worlds of Music. Class readings will also be assigned from this text, although two supplementary articles, and music will be assigned in the course of the term. All supplementary readings will be placed on reserve in the Music Library in the School of Music. It is the responsibility of the students to copy/read this material before the class for which it is assigned. It is assumed that students have completed all assigned reading before each lecture. If readings are unclear, please ask the professor to clarify them for you.

During the semester there will be six short quizzes given at the beginning of the class period during which they are scheduled (approx. one per geographic region) worth 20% of the grade. The mid-term exam will be worth 30% and the final, which is cumulative, will be worth 50% points.

This course will examine anthropological perspectives on dance and its role in social life. We will also consider the growth of ethnological scholarship on dance since Gertrude Kurath's pioneering essay, "Panorama of Dance Ethnology." We will then focus on recent interdisciplinary trends in dance and performance studies, by reading major monographs such as Jane Cowan's "Dance and the Body Politic in Northern Greece" (1990), Cynthia Novak's "Sharing the Dance" (1990), and Marta Savigliano's "Tango and the Political Economy of Passion" (1995). Student projects will involve ethnographic study of dance communities on the Internet, and around themselves.

Section 001 Classical Music in the U.S. (? Credits). Meets with Music History 508.001.

Instructor(s): Mark Clague (claguem@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (1-3). (Excl). May be repeated for credit.

Credits: (1-3; 1-2 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~claguem/courses/usclassical/

We will explore the history of the Western European classical tradition in the New World through discussion, listening, role playing, and a class research project, culminating in an afternoon symposium. Material covered will balance the history of American composers and their works with the sometimes awkward, sometimes apparently natural, position of classical music in American culture. Issues of American identity, gender, race, and social class will be addressed in depth.

Although the ability to perform is not required, participants will be encouraged to share their musical skills in class and during an evening recital that will introduce music of the colonial and experimental traditions. Students will be able to substitute a performance with commentary for a formal written paper.

Research teams of three to four students will address a topic area within a class-wide symposium titled, The Future of Classical Music in America?" Each team will design, execute, and present a study of classical music in contemporary American society, focusing on a core issue, such as audience, performance, composition, education, presentation, technology, and economics. Each project will be made part of the class Website and presented to the class along with invited guests in an afternoon meeting, organized and executed by the class. Collaborative teaching technology will be used extensively in the course. All participants should have a University of Michigan email and ifs account, a web browser with Real Audio, and word-processing software, preferrably MSWord. All of this software is available at University computing sites across campus.Students will be asked to participate in a voluntary and anonymous assessment study to measure the effects of technology on the learning experience.
