Sound and Sense: Listening to Music equips you with the skills to engage your mind as well as your heart as you encounter the music of the world.

Welcome to MUSIC 268/HUMN 268: Classical Music: An Historical Introduction. The principal aim of this course is to review the fundamental elements of Western art music. We begin by obtaining a good grasp of the key elements of music, and it is equally important to become comfortable with the meaning and use of the musical vocabulary introduced.

Music 412/Cultural Studies 412/Humanities 412: Cultural Studies in Twentieth-Century Western Music is a fourth-year, three-credit course that will introduce you to twentieth-century art music of Western Europe and North America.
This course draws principally on the disciplines of ethnomusicology, folklore, and cultural history, while also taking into account perspectives from academics working in cultural studies, ballad studies, and musicology. The course will give students a grounding in the scholarly literature on Canadian musical traditions and provide a systematic introduction to the remarkable variety of Canadian vernacular song and its historical development since the colonial era.
