Subject Area: Music

In this course you will learn a range of strategies for focusing on music in detail. You will be taught how to analyze music in a sustained and particular manner. More broadly, you will gain a better understanding of some of the problems - of technique, of experience, of description - that motivate music and its analysis. So in addition to specific ways of analyzing music, the course will include discussions of readings that are relevant to each method. At the end of the course you will have a good grounding in the practical skills needed to analyze music, and in analysis as an intellectual pursuit.
