MUS 5 Jazz: Black Creative Music and American Culture

The music known as ‘jazz’ has been one of the most revolutionary and influential artistic movements of the past century. Jazz: Black Creative Music and American Culture will provide a basic historical overview of the music, with major themes including the relationship between composition and improvisation; the reinvention of traditional roles of performer, composer, bandleader, and collective ensemble; and the music’s connection to African-American history and the civil rights movement. Not open to students who have received credit for MUS 05.01 or MUS 05.02.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
