Music History

Music History is a central and essential component of the undergraduate Core Course. The five-semester sequence emphasizes listening and analysis to further an understanding of Western music from Ancient Greece to the present day.

MM students take Graduate Music History Seminars, offered every semester. Topics change from semester to semester and are never repeated two years in succession. Over the course of their MM program students will have thirty-six different seminar topics to choose from.
