How to Use This Course

In Music Throughout History, students study the history of music from the medieval period through modern times. The course begins with a look at music around the world and then moves to a study of how music in America has changed and developed over time. Both famous and lesser-known composers and hymn writers are studied.

Course Introduction

Our journey through music history will span thirty-six lessons. We explore different eras of time and the music that made up that time period. We study both famous composers and composers you may have never heard of. We also study hymn writers and how music in America has changed and developed over time. We wrap up the course by tying it all together and discussing how you can compose your own original musical composition.
