Course Description

 
Since the 1890s, when Americans were beginning to develop their own traditions in classical music, composers have
recognized the dilemma of creating the American sound. We’ll explore how not only classical musicians, but also
Broadway and Hollywood composers of different origins and ethnicities alternated in creating a sound that has
been defined as evocative of these lands and their people. Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, William Grant Steel, Florence
Price, Alex North, Elmer Bernstein, and others will be the protagonists of this lecture, supported with audiovisuals and
anecdotes.

Continuing Education (CE) courses and programs offered online through LSU Online & Continuing Education typically include a combination of lecture and discussion as well as reading and writing assignments. You need an adequate command of English in all skill areas (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) to participate in classes.

If English is not your native language, you must meet one of the English language proficiency requirements below to be successful in our CE programs. If you intend to register for a CE course or program, you can determine whether you meet English proficiency requirements by self-assessment prior to enrolling. We want to empower you, the learner, to progress successfully. Completing this self-assessment will enable you to make a good decision on whether you can complete one of our programs.

Intermediate English Skills

When assessing yourself, be sure to read through each of the categories under Column B2 to make sure you meet proficiency requirements.
