MUSC 250

Music in Everyday Life

Introduction to the ethnography of music and performance in social and cultural contexts. 2014 Offering: We actively and passively experience music everyday of our lives: at the concert hall, in a club, at a ceremony, or even standing in line at the market. But how often do we consider where that music comes from, who made it, and how we came to experience it? This course offers an exploration of the many ways we engage with music throughout daily life. We will explore collective and individual experiences with music through the study of performance, composition, education, aesthetics, identity, as well as the influence of the commercial music industry. Co-taught with MUSC 356.

Taught by the School of New Zealand School of Music, part of the Faculty of New Zealand School of Music
