MSC 1003 - Music in Civilization

Class 3Monday, February 08

All right! If you are tuning in for the first time, make sure that you go back to the class one blog and look at everything there.

"Meetup" Zooms

This week features our "meet and greet" zoom sessions. We'll sign up for small groups at various times (not just in scheduled class time!) and go around the room answering simple questions about your past musical experiences and what kind of music you really like. Go straight to Assignment #9 for sign-ups and more details.

Even for this assignment, you don't HAVE to zoom if you don't want to. You can email me the answers instead. Look at the assignment #9 instructions for more details on how to do that.

Assignment #7: Medieval Instruments

This assignment is really somewhat hefty. First, please watch our online material on Medieval and Renaissance instruments.

Then, Exercise #7 asks you eighteen[!] questions about all of it.

This assignment is due on the day of Class 6 (Mon, Feb 22).

Assignment #8: Minstrels and Troubadours

First, look at our online material about minstrels and troubadours.

Then, Exercise #8 asks you seven questions about it.

This one is also due on the day of Class 6 (Mon, Feb 22).

Assignment #9: Zoom Meetups (or Email)

Like I said at the top of the page, we'll meet in small groups to discuss your musical interests and experiences. You can sign up for a session on the Assignment #9 page.

If you don't want to zoom, you can just email me some info instead. See the Assignment #9 instructions page for more details on what to do.

This assignment will be due on the day of Class 8 (Mon, March 1) for a check-plus, but you can even email me late for a check.
