MUSIC 115- Survey of Music
Instructor: Dr. Steven Errante
Attendance: no attendance records are kept, but note policy below on missed quizzes or exams
Texts: Western Music Listening Today, Fourth Edition, Charles Hoffer. The text is connected with numerous resources on the publisher's web site. Links to other web materials will be given on my course web page.
Exams are indicated on the syllabus, but quizzes may be given with no prior announcement. Exams and quizzes will cover material covered in class and listening assignments made outside of class and cannot be made up unless there is an extreme personal emergency.
Class participation is a vital part of this course. The response to music is often a subjective one, so that diversity of opinion is encouraged as long as everyone maintains an open mind to unfamiliar types of music.
Grading: final grade is based on quiz and exam grades
Examination: June 16, 8 a.m.
GOALS OF THE COURSE
Exposure to a variety of musical types (primarily Western classical), with an emphasis on better listening and understanding. You will need to listen enough to the assigned works to be able to identify them on a "drop the needle" basis and also be able to comment on the most important characteristics of each. Memorization will be required of the starting and ending dates of each period and to which period each composer belongs.
