MUS 100
MUS 100 - Musical Literacies

This course is designed to provide an immersion in the world of music to improve listening, reading, and general comprehension skills. The focus is on the fundamentals of music (notation, rhythm, melody, scales, chords, and formal plans) and listening examples will be drawn from a wide variety of genres, styles, and cultural traditions. Individual members of the academic faculty will visit regularly to introduce students to the rich diversity of approaches to the field of music. No prior musical knowledge is expected. Students may choose to take the Music Theory Placement Exam to see if they can exempt MUS 100 and go directly into MUS 200, MUS 201, MUS 202, MUS 122, or MUS 220. A musicianship lab supplements the three class meetings. May be counted toward the major or the minor.

MUS 104
MUS 104 - Composition

In this course we will begin the process of learning the techniques of music composition. Through the writing of exercises, and projects, we will learn the fundamentals of musical syntax and composition. In the process, we will unlock our creativity, learn how to discuss other people’s music, and learn about how music can aid in the telling of a story. By the end of the semester, students will have attained the skills necessary for writing an original piece of music that can be played by other musicians. Students will have learned how to compose their own melodies, how to harmonize these melodies in a variety of ways, and how to create compelling musical textures with many different combinations of musical instruments and timbres. Students will be encouraged to develop their own unique compositional “voice” by drawing upon intensive studies of both musical works they already know and enjoy, and musical works they may never have heard before.

MUS 105Y
MUS 105Y - FYS: Rhythm and Form

One of the most fundamental ways that music moves us is through rhythm and the emotional highs and lows of musical form. This first year seminar will focus on the musical materials that aid in critically analyzing popular music and world music: rhythm and song form. In this seminar, students will hone their ability to hear the structures that make up the music in our daily lives through group discussion, guided listening journals, and practice with analysis. The semester will culminate in an analysis of a listening experience, such as an album, playlist, DJ set, or concert. Students need no prior experience with formal musical training: they need only to have the means to listen to music in private.

Topic for Fall 2024: The Symphony in the World

The Austrian composer, Gustav Mahler, argued that “a Symphony must be like the world; it must embrace everything.” This course takes Mahler’s statement as a springboard for examining the rich and varied sounds of the Symphony in the Western European classical tradition. Students will build on their skills in music analysis and criticism through close listening to famous symphonies by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Liszt, Tchaikovsky, and Mahler. We will learn about the cultural, stylistic, and aesthetic nuances of these works from a variety of intellectual standpoints (including feminist theory, queer theory, and sound studies). A highlight of this course will be a field trip to a performance by the Boston Symphony Orchestra. All students are welcome.

MUS 202 - Topics in Music History III

Topic for Fall 2024: Expressing Race and Gender through New Music

Topic for Fall 2024: Expressing Race and Gender through New Music

This course takes its spark from recent global and on-campus conversations around race and anti-racism in relation to the arts, particularly music composed and created during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Students will become familiar with “canonical works” by (predominantly male, some female, and mostly white Euro-American) composers. However, the primary focus is on the creative achievements of under-represented composers and musicians identifying as Black, Latinx, East Asian, and Native American. This course inverts the balance by privileging the artistic accomplishments of composers and musicians who usually reside at the margins of “central” conversations. Our goal is to understand what the traditional category of “modernism and music” reveals about history and society from typically less represented cultural/racial/gendered perspectives. Students will undertake critical listening/viewing/reading assignments and reflect on live performances through writing.

MUS 209
MUS 209 - History of Jazz

The influence of jazz on music in the twentieth century and beyond has been so profound that it has gone from being a feared public scourge to “America's Classical Music.” Ever since its origins among African Americans in the 1910s, jazz has challenged distinctions between “art” and “popular,” at times even playing a key role in social protest. Today, it is an internationally respected art form that is revered by musicians as varied as hip-hop artists and classical composers. This course will cover the history of jazz through critically engaging with recorded performances, source readings and popular reception, and evidence of its broader influence in popular culture. We will also learn about jazz's role in international music scenes, including approaches from Europe, Asia, and throughout the African Diaspora.

Metropolises bring together diverse groups of people in concentrated locations all over the world. Along with heightened crime and poverty, they are also home to an astounding variety of musical innovations. This course offers an exploration of disparate musical cultures in major metropolises of the world. Throughout the semester, we will study major cities, the major musical developments to come from them, and the cultural conflicts and celebrations that emerge in contemporary urban life. In addition to local styles, we will discuss such global styles as hip-hop, punk, pop, dancehall, rock, roots music, “world music,” and electronic dance music, and how they relate to the urban environments where they were developed and where they continue to thrive.

MUS 213 - Video Games: Composition & Criticism

This course examines the expressive ways in which music and sound function within the medium of video games. The “criticism” component of the course draws on recent scholarship from the fields of music, media studies, sound studies, film, and video games, asking students to interrogate the role of music and sound in relation to play. The “composition” component of the course invites students to create original video game music and sound. Together, these varied approaches will allow students to reflect on their experiences as players whose immersive experience is shaped by sonic cues, and as critics whose intellectual engagement with the act of gaming finds points of intersection with a larger world of ideas and their relationship to the sensory process.

MUS 215 - Music, Dance, Culture of Haiti

This is an adaptation of Wintersession Course MUS 214H, re-envisioned for remote summer session only. We will study the traditional and folkloric music, dance, and culture of Haiti, using the ethnomusicological lenses of bi-musicality and applied ethnomusicology. Students will participate in lectures, discussions, and experiential lab sessions that will reveal the multiple styles and techniques of the folkloric arts of the Central and Southern regions of Haiti: Port-au-Prince, Gonaives, Jacmel, Lascohobas, Saut d’Eau, and Mirebalais, where the Leocardie and Alexandre Kenscoff Cultural Center (C-CLAK), founded by Professor Emeritus Gerdès Fleurant, is located. The work of Professor Fleurant’s C-CLAK will provide for us a case study of applied ethnomusicology. Through virtual engagements with Professor Fleurant, students will gain an understanding of applied ethnomusicology as community engagement, support, promotion, and service in the various projects of the Center, including the Gawou Ginou King Foundation School and Holistic Center, and will be asked to envision their own contributions to C-CLAK, in final projects.

MUS 219/ REL 219 - Christian Ritual & Sacred Arts

Ritual is a fundamental and often controversial aspect of the Christian tradition. It is also a remarkably complex form of religious expression that integrates language, tone, gesture, image, and design. This course examines the major forms of Christian ritual, their expression in art, architecture, music, and literature, and the methods used in interpreting them in contemporary scholarship. We will examine Christianity’s principal rituals from their beginnings in baptism (initiation) and the eucharist (communion), through monastic chant and the Roman mass, to Protestant liturgies, sacred song, and revivalism, and ritual in contemporary social media. As a special feature, we will study specific sites from various historical periods in order to learn about how art, architecture, and music articulated these ritual forms, using theoretical models from the emerging field of Ritual Studies.

MUS 220 - Jazz Theory

This course is based on an immersion approach, exploring the language of jazz and contemporary music, and fostering a close connection between theory and practice. Learn the basics: scales and modes, chords, forms, rhythmic structures, and jazz styles. You will learn how to listen to jazz and contemporary music, and define and describe what you hear. You will practice improvisation techniques in class. Ear training is a key component: singing bass lines and jazz solos, and practicing harmonic dictation, learning to “hear the changes”. We explore the fundamentals of jazz and popular music harmony, including tune analysis, the II-V progression, secondary dominants, re-harmonization, and jazz piano voicings. We also put these concepts into practice, completing jazz compositions and transcriptions, and using music software to publish assignments. Musicianship lab supplements the class meeting.

MUS 228 - Film Music

This course will consist of a survey of the history of music in film from its beginnings in the silent era to modern times. The class will look at a diverse handful of films. This narrower focus will allow a deeper exploration of the techniques of soundtrack, and their evolution throughout the different eras and regions of film production. The course will explore the role of music in storytelling, including its precedents in opera, and ballet. Musical semiotics will be discussed in an effort to understand how meaning is derived in a film through the aid of music. We will also explore the evolution of recording and filming technology for film, and how these changes made an impact on soundtracks. Some of the films studied will be Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo and Psycho (score composed by Bernard Hermann), Akira Kurosawa’s Ran (score by Toru Takemitsu), Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite (score by: Jung Jae II), Jordan Peele’s Get Out!, Us, and Nope (all scored by Michael Abels), Rosen Martin and John Hubley. Watership Down (score by: Angela Morley), Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood (score by Jonny Greenwood), and Amores perros (scored by Gustavo Santoalalla).

ANTH 235/ MUS 245 - Introduction to Ethnomusicology

What happens when we study music and sound from an anthropological framework? Ethnomusicology, or the cultural study of music and sound, seeks to do just that. Through a hands-on approach to music research, this course has three aims: 1) to give students the opportunity of doing ethnographic research in a local community; 2) to explore key concepts pertaining to ethnomusicology and the anthropology of sound; 3) to work together to create a good working atmosphere in which students can share ongoing research with each other. Students will gain experience doing fieldwork as participant observers; taking notes and writing up field journals; recording and transcribing interviews; and conducting secondary research online and in the library. Each student will conduct regular visits to a local music group or community of their choice. Past projects have focused on Senegalese drumming, musical healing circles, and hip-hop dance groups. The semester will culminate in a final presentation and paper (8-10 pages) based on the student’s research.

MUS 252 - Voices: Counterpoint through the Ages

The course focuses primarily on melodic writing and the coming together of various strands of musical activity to create a rich texture. Beginning with a grounding in 16th and 18th century contrapuntal music in Europe, the course expands to include explorations of 20th century counterpoint in both Western Classical as well as popular and jazz music. Finally, the course questions and explores the concept of “Polyphony” beyond the Western European construction. We explore ways in which music can have multiple strands occurring simultaneously, such as Indonesian Gamelan, West African Drumming, African hocketing traditions, Eastern European polyphonic singing, Afro-Cuban music, etc.

MUS 276
MUS 276 - American Popular Music

"Popular music" denotes a variety of idioms-including R&B, rock, soul, funk, and hip-hop-linked to the youth culture and social movements that developed in the United States after World War II. With a foundation in African American genres (especially blues and gospel), popular music has also absorbed strong influences from rural white Protestant communities, Latin America, and Europe, and its sounds are indelibly linked to twentieth-century technologies (the electric guitar, multitrack recording, turntables). With an emphasis on the 1940s to the 1970s, our historical survey of American popular music will bring us from the 1800s to the present day. Using close listening as a starting point, we will learn how to decode sounds to reveal their complex social histories as we assess popular music's role in America's tumultuous twentieth century.

Topic for Fall 2024: Global Music Industries

Have you ever wondered how the music you love gets transformed from its inception to a product for eager audiences around the world? Discovering new music is often a combination of personal taste, the influence of our social cohort, and the limitations of what is available through live performance in our neighborhood and online digital music services.  This seminar will take a critical exploration of the different routes that we use to find the music we love.  We will cover a vast array of topics ranging from the ways musical taste changes in time, the use and abuse of streaming digital media, and the mining of musical ideas from the developing world in recent pop music trends.  All students in the seminar will have an opportunity to design a term project on the role of listening among Wellesley students.

MUS 301 - CSPW: The Power of Music

This course challenges students to think critically about music, and writing about music, in the public sphere. Students explore the relationship between their specialized academic knowledge and their experiences as day-to-day consumers of music. The core material of the course consists of a series of writing and editing exercises for an imagined audience of non-specialists—including reviews of recordings and lectures, program notes for concerts, an interview with a prominent musician—and discussions of controversial issues in academic music. This course addresses a variety of issues, such as how to write about the experience of live performance or how to assess music as a kind of social activism. By translating the technical vocabulary of academic music into a language accessible to the public, students find that they listen and think musically in new and unanticipated ways.

MUS 308 - Conducting

The study of conducting is a synthesis of all skills important to a musician's craft, and the art of communicating a specific musical vision to bring a composer's written intentions to life. The physical gestures are expressive of a full understanding of both the score and the instruments and/or voices performing the work. This course is a study of the techniques that transform written music into sound, including score preparation and reading, baton technique, and rehearsal methods. Development of aural and interpretive ability as well as leadership skills are explored in the process. Students will have the opportunity to take their skills outside the classroom and conduct one of the College's musical ensembles as part of their work in the course.

MUS 309
MUS 309 - A History of Jazz

The influence of jazz on music in the twentieth century and beyond has been so profound that it has gone from being a feared public scourge to “America's Classical Music.” Ever since its origins among African Americans in the 1910s, jazz has challenged distinctions between “art” and “popular,” at times even playing a key role in social protest. Today, it is an internationally respected art form that is revered by musicians as varied as hip-hop artists and classical composers. This course will cover the history of jazz through critically engaging with recorded performances, source readings and popular reception, and evidence of its broader influence in popular culture. Through leading a class discussion and completing a term paper, students in MUS 309 will learn to connect the technical language of jazz analysis to socio-cultural context.

MUS 314
MUS 314/ PORT 314 - Brazilian Music

From the dawn of the 20th century, Brazil has promoted itself to the world as a particularly musical country. In addition to samba, the country is the birthplace of many well-loved genres including choro, bossa nova, and funk carioca. Brazilian popular song is considered by many to be a literary genre where songwriters such as Vinicius de Morais and Arnaldo Antunes describe themselves as poets and their lyrics are major topics of study by scholars of Portuguese literature. In this course, we will uncover the historical and cultural origins of many of the major musical developments in Brazil and explore how they express polemics around citizenship, social activism, and cosmopolitanism. Students familiar with Portuguese will have the option of additional, focused study of Portuguese lyrics and will be encouraged to compose their writing assignments in Portuguese.

MUS 315 - Advanced Harmony

Beginning with traditional four-part chorale writing, MUS 315 explores the more advanced concepts inherent to tonal harmony, voice-leading, and formal analysis. Topics include diatonic and chromatic modulations, embellishments, mode mixture, variation, development procedures such as diatonic and chromatic sequences, and the relationship between harmony and tonal form. Over the course of the semester, students will be introduced to basic theory terminology and modes of analysis. In addition to listening to and analyzing a number of tonal works inside and outside of the classical canon, students will complete weekly assignments in writing in the tonal idiom and several composition projects. Musicianship lab supplements the class meetings.

Together we will explore elements such as rhythm, line, space, and composition from the perspectives of sound studies and drawing, focusing in particular on the graphic mark. Students will interact with several visiting artists, and will visit working artists in their studios and observe relevant art installations and performances. Students will develop semester-long studio projects, which will be supplemented by discussions, critiques, and readings.

MUS 344
MUS 344 - Advanced Performance Workshop

Music 344 offers an exciting opportunity for accomplished performing music students to develop their artistry and performance skills on a high level. Qualified students participate in this weekly performance class in addition to their weekly one-hour lessons (MUS 344-M) with their private instructors, and develop their abilities by performing frequently in class and receiving constructive feedback. Students also grow as musicians by listening to other students perform, by being exposed to the broad range of repertoire presented in class, and by participating in the process of constructive criticism. In conjunction with their in-class performances, students are asked to provide brief, written background information about their repertoire to enhance their understanding of the music and to prepare for writing program notes. Students should plan on a time investment of about 14 hours per week. Students enrolled for the full year, as is strongly encouraged, perform a jury in the Fall and full recital in the Spring. Students who choose Honors in Performance (Honors Program III) must take MUS 344 as part of their MUS 360 and MUS 370 thesis work, the two components counting as 1 unit of credit per semester.

MUS 345
ANTH 345/ MUS 345 - Introduction to Ethnomusicology

What happens when we study music and sound from an anthropological framework? Ethnomusicology, or the cultural study of music and sound, seeks to do just that. Through a hands-on approach to music research, this course has three aims: 1) to give students the opportunity of doing ethnographic research in a local community; 2) to explore key concepts pertaining to ethnomusicology and the anthropology of sound; 3) to work together to create a good working atmosphere in which students can share ongoing research with each other. Students will gain experience doing fieldwork as participant observers; taking notes and writing up field journals; recording and transcribing interviews; and conducting secondary research online and in the library. Each student will conduct regular visits to a local music group or community of their choice. Past projects have focused on Senegalese drumming, musical healing circles, and hip-hop dance groups. The semester will culminate in a final presentation and paper (15 pages) based on the student’s research.
