About MUSC 201: Rock and Roll History I
This online class is a general but in-depth survey of the major styles, periods, and influence-streams that make up the extremely large and varied category of “Rock” music. The text covers many styles, but the focus is on English-language mainstream popular music, produced between circa 1954 and 1975. Other important sub-genres will also be explored including Motown, progressive rock, folk-rock, funk, reggae, and disco.By the end of the course students will have a greater understanding of where this music came from (historically), what it is doing (musically), and how it was created (technologically).
Rock and Roll History is an exciting and fulfilling class especially to students that enjoy listening to rock music ... Dr. Gable makes it enjoyable with the various activities required to compete the class (e.g., video discussions, a concert report, etc.) Have fun while learning; what a winning combination!
