As a music major in college, I took various music history courses that have given me the foundations to teach this course. I am extremely passionate about music, and I enjoy analyzing music on a deep and thoughtful manner. I want to teach students how to connect music to broader concepts through lyrical interpretation and musical analysis. This class is meant to be engaging, thought-provoking, and fun! Lastly, I have also taught a similar course through another online learning platform. Thus, I have experience in online teaching and understand how to effectively navigate online teaching and online discussions.
No homework will be assigned, as this is a one-time course.
