Description

Class Experience

Students will gain an appreciation of Native American music, and learn that in the area of North America there were many different playing styles. They will also find out that these instruments are relatively inexpensive, and that they can learn to play them themselves.
I have long had a interest in Native American culture, and have visited the Navajo, and Hopi reservations. I have also visited with my children local ancestry sites of the Chumash here in Southern California. I have also enhanced my understanding of the different American Indigenous cultures by taking Professor Browner’s class in Native American music, while completing my degree in Ethnomusicology at UCLA.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
