MUSI 405 introduces students to two musical traditions of the United States—jazz and classical or concert music—in order to explore how music signifies as an interpretable art form and functions as a historical artifact, within a social practice, as an expression of individual subjectivity, and as an expression of cultural identity. It also attempts to draw connections between American music and the country’s history and cultural life.
