The performance of Western art music (aka classical music) is a multifaceted process. First and foremost, performance serves as a conduit between a composer and the listeners, a vehicle in which the notated composition is converted from the printed page into an aurally comprehensible format. The performing musicians function as a "middle man" between the composer and the audience, and this community of artists adds its own layer of creativity and expression through its interpretation of the composer's work. The musicians pool their finely-honed abilities into a unity of purpose: presenting their audience with a cogent statement of artistic expression. This course aims to provide an in-depth understanding of how the music comes together, from a number of different points of view: performing musician, composer and listener. While the bulk of the content focuses on Western art music, additional styles, including jazz and select non-Western musics, are also explored. Gaining a historical context of style is a priority, and secondary emphases include analytical listening and writing about music. MUSC 102, 105 and 107 all serve as introductory courses in music history and satisfy the same prerequisites. Students may enroll in only one of these courses. Suggested for first-year students or those new to the department. This counts toward the history requirement for the major and minor. No prerequisite. Offered every year.

This course explores the historical intersections of music and dance in the collaborative creative process. Music and dance are inexorably linked. At times music composition and choreography happen simultaneously, as is the case with Aaron Copland and Martha Graham's "Appalachian Spring." At other times, the dance comes after the music has been composed. Learning about the vital intersections between music and dance provides students with a more deeply understood and nuanced approach to how the work of composers and choreographers intersects as they dialogue in works ranging historically from Lully and Petipa to Philip Glass and Mark Morris. This is an interdisciplinary class co-taught by a professor of dance and a professor of music. This course is the same as DANC 214D and must be taken as MUSC 214D to be paired with other music courses for fine arts diversification. This counts toward the theory requirement for the dance major and minor and as an elective for the music major and minor. No prerequisite. Offered spring semester every other year.

Music is deeply embedded in many forms of individual and cultural identity. This upper-level seminar examines the relationship of music to notions of cultural rights and human rights. Using case studies from a variety of music cultures, we explore topics such as music censorship, music and warfare, music and disability, and music and AIDS awareness, among others. Engaging with literature from ethnomusicology, anthropology and other social sciences, we explore the following questions: What roles do music and related forms of expressive culture play in notions of human rights? Who owns music? Who has the right to transform music? What are the artistic, political and economic reasons for these transformations? What are their implications? What constitutes a cultural-rights violation? What role, if any, should regulatory agencies have with regard to monitoring cultural rights? This course is the same as ANTH 310D. It must be taken as MUSC 310D to count toward the fine arts requirement. This counts as an elective for the major and minor. Prerequisite: ANTH 113 or MUSC 102, 105 or 107 and permission of instructor.

This seminar explores the relationship of music and film, with a focus on ethnographic film and ethnographic film-making. How does our understanding of music inform our experience of film?

How does ethnographic film both react against, and make use of, other stylistic conventions of film-making in achieving its ends? Practical exercises in ethnographic film-making (and their analysis) during the semester lead toward ethnographic, historical or analytical projects. This course is the same as ANTH 312D. It must be taken as MUSC 312D to count towards the fine arts requirement. This counts as an elective for the major and minor. Prerequisite: MUSC 102, 105 or 107 or ANTH 113.

Properly defined, entrepreneurship lies at the heart of the liberal arts experience. Students in the liberal arts are ideally situated to apply their broad interdisciplinary knowledge and skill sets to find new solutions to unsolved problems. In the arts generally, and music specifically, entrepreneurial thinking means applying creative problem-solving to find ways to engage audiences and broaden appeal in a culture in which people’s access to and desire for music in their daily lives is at an all-time high. How do we as musicians bring those audiences in? This course is part of a broader effort (spearheaded by the GLCA's DePauw University) to transform the ways in which we prepare 21st-century musicians by cultivating the creative and imaginative powers that reside at the heart of the artist-entrepreneur. It is designed to equip the next generation of arts leaders to build a more promising future. Through lectures, readings, videos, class visits (in-person and virtual) from Kenyon alums and others who are finding success, and project creation and implementation, students identify and develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills vital to succeeding as music entrepreneurs, arts administrators and community catalysts in an increasingly complex creative ecology. The course is twofold, offering a foundational knowledge base in concepts and experiential learning through project design and implementation. This counts as an elective for the major and minor. Permission of instructor required. Prerequisite: sophomore standing. Offered every two to three years.

This course is designed primarily for music majors to prepare them for the specific problems and issues that confront the instrumental and/or choral conductor.

This counts as an elective for the major and minor. Permission of instructor required. Prerequisite: MUSC 202, 203, 204 or 205 and MUSC 121Y. Offered every other year.

Individual study is available to junior or senior music majors wishing to explore, with a music department faculty member, a topic not normally offered in the curriculum. The student proposes the topic to the faculty member, who then brings the proposal before the department for approval. The department discusses the feasibility of any proposal. Individual studies supplement the music curriculum and may not be used to satisfy major requirements. Individual studies earn either 0.25 or 0.5 units. After identifying a faculty member willing to oversee the individual study, the student should work with that professor to develop a short (one-page) proposal to be shared with the department for approval. The proposal should articulate the nature of the proposed study; present planned readings, assignments and other work; and describe how or what in the proposed study will be assessed at the end of the semester. Meeting schedules may vary, but at a minimum the department expects that students will meet once per week with the faculty member. Because students must enroll for individual studies by the end of the seventh class day of each semester, they should begin discussion of the proposed individual study by the semester before, so that there is time to devise the proposal and seek departmental approval.

Prerequisite: permission of department chair.
