History of Rock includes a more immersive understanding of music, its construction, its execution, and how that has impacted world events including politics, style and fashion, cultural evolution, and the rethinking of art itself. This will include examining music of last 100 years.
In addition to reviewing various artists, discussing their contributions and what effect they had on our culture, a basic understanding of music theory will also be taught, as well as a familiarization of the tools used throughout the history of music. This includes various instruments AND recording devices and techniques. We plan on giving the students a hands-on experience.
The goal is to impart a more comprehensive understanding of music, its creators and listeners, and how it has changed and been changed by important historical, technological, and cultural events.
