Red Comet will introduce a new high school course where students learn about music from different world cultures. This course will be launched in the spring semester of the 2017-18 school year.
The Music in World Cultures Course examines music throughout the ages and from around the world. The course helps the student get a better understanding of various cultures, providing them with a diverse overview of the music created in those cultures. It also covers the benefits of music, careers, ancient music, and music in the Middle Ages. Other lessons within the course cover Europe’s Renaissance, Baroque, Western Classical, and Romantic Music, as well as music from Canada, South America, Australia, Oceania, and Asia. The course even delves into modern music and how it pertains to society today.
The goal of the course is to provide the student with a good and well-rounded knowledge of music from the earliest times to the modern day.
