What makes music valuable? Can music be appreciated only for its beauty? What is the significance of music in human life?

This course will introduce you to a number of ‘masterpieces’ from the Western classical music tradition. You will have the chance to listen to them and learn about why they are valued as works of art. In preparation for this, you will be taught the basic vocabulary of music criticism including rhythm, melody, harmony, texture, form, and so on. Upon completing this course, you will be able to enjoy music in a more active and focused manner. At the same time, you should be able to identify philosophical and ethical issues related to music as a cultural phenomenon.

No previous training in music (theory or performance) is needed.
