Untitled document
A continuation of Music 6.2. The students are expected to :
  1. Comprehend that musical styles owe their characteristics not simply
     to the inventive genius of the composers, performers, and theorists
     of a given era; but also, to a variety of extramusical influences:
     political and religious beliefs, philosophical trends, wars, social,
     technical, economic conditions.
  2. Understand that Music History is a history of musical style, and
     cannot be grasped except by first-hand knowledge of the music
     itself.
  3. Realize that music-making is and always has been inextricably linked
     to the great endeavors of human thought and activity.
  4. Become acquainted with the sound of the music and be able to examine
     it intelligently.
  5. Place the music in its larger historical and cultural context.
  6. Recognize the performance practices of the twentieth century as it
     is interpreted and performed with the special demands of our own
     era.
  7. Name, relate, and identify important musical terminologies as they
     have significance on twentieth-century music.
  8. Expand their own musical experience by reading, discussing, listen-
     ing, and analyzing the music of the twentieth century, both in and
     out of the classroom.
  9. Pursue and comprehend patterns of meaning found both in linguistic
     and non-linguistic terms.
