MUS 1005   Rock Music History   Credits: 3

In this course, students will explore the musical and cultural melting pot of rock music from its African and European roots through the American blues, country, and gospel influenced music of the 1950s considering the impact of political and cultural tension surrounding its creation. The focus then shifts to the social upheaval of the 1960's with new musical styles sparked by the Beatles and Rolling Stones during the British Invasion and resulting global reactions including developments in technology and music business models that helped shape the ways music was created and experienced. No previous training in music is required.
