C. Miller.

This course explores the breadth of music found in present day China, Japan, and Korea–from indigenous musical traditions, through adaptations of Western art music, up to the latest popular styles–as well as the presence of traditional East Asian musics outside East Asia, including right here at Cornell. In both cases, music offers a lens for examining the myriad social and cultural forces that shape it, and that are shaped by it. The course’s academic focus on critical reading and listening, written assignments, and discussion is complemented by hands-on workshops and demonstrations with student-led ensembles.
