D. Yearsley.

This workshop in music journalism will sharpen your prose, your mind, and your tongue. We’ll read the work of great journalists of the past and present who’ve written ardently and unforgettably about music— Joseph Addison, Hector Berlioz, Robert Schumann, George Bernard Shaw, Paul Griffiths, Greil Marcus, Stanley Crouch, and Alex Ross, among others. Thus inspired, we’ll dive into the vibrant musical scene of Cornell and beyond, each participant writing weekly pieces for the class blog, whose title and format will be determined by class members. In the course of the semester each student will accumulate a substantial portfolio of journalism, and a love of writing about music.
