This course explores some of the many ways that people perform, experience, enjoy, and discuss music around the world. Case studies of specific culture areas and significant musicians are tied to local ethnography projects, enabling students to take advantage of the stunning diversity of global music traditions practiced in New York City. The course also covers basic elements of music and terminology, so previous musical experience and familiarity with Western music notation are not required.
