Jazz History Class

Learning Goals: 

By participating in this course students will gain a more comprehensive understanding of the political, socio-economic, cultural, geographical, and historical implications that gave rise to what is often described as the only “true American art form” - jazz music. Through lectures, presentations, videos, guided listenings, and demonstrations, students will learn about famous jazz musicians, musical structures, important events, and how to practice “active listening.”
