An Introduction to Art Music gives students the opportunity to see as well as hear music – an enchanting experience! It also helps them learn that an art music performance is not like a rock concert!

Supported by YouTube videos and other online resources, Mary Dave Blackman’s (East Tennessee State University) An Introduction to Art Music focuses specifically on art music rather than trying to cover the entire gamut of musical possibilities.

An Introduction to Art Music:
 

  • Utilizes the Classical Music Library - an online database of more than 100,000 recordings combined with chapter playlists, writing assignments, and the ability for the instructor to create a customizable supplemental playlist.
  • Relates the terminology, instruments, and other elements to contemporary music and introduces world music and popular music where those styles intersect.
  • Emphasizes music within the context of history and culture – a goal of general education courses.
  • Encourages students to learn about music they will actually hear in live performances.
