FALL SEMESTER (8.29.11 - 12.16.11) -or- SPRING SEMESTER ( 1.4.12 - 5.13.12 )
Welcome to our online course entitled "History of Western Music II". In this semester-long course, we will learn about the history of western music, starting in the Classical Period and continuing up to our modern day. Each of these musical periods could easily be the subject of a complete semester course of its own, but in this survey course, we'll be looking at these periods and their composers in a broader way. When you are finished working through this course you will have a much greater familiarity with the progression of music through history, and a representative sampling of the greatest composers and their best works. This course is designed as a semester-long course.

Jim Murray teaches in the Music Department at Lourdes College, Sylvania. Jim holds a bachelor’s degree in music education, along with a master’s degree in education.
