Genres of Music: Story, Word, and Song. From American folk singers to the griots of West Africa, and from Italian opera to Korean pansori, our world is rich in narrative traditions of musical performance. Reaching back into history as well as across the diverse genres through which musicians give meaning to our lives today, Story, Word, and Song explores the spectacular variety of musical narratives to be found throughout human society. During the semester, students investigate through writing and discussion not only the relationship between words and music but also the complex social and psychological phenomena that attend all forms of narrative performance. The course even considers how music without words holds the potential to convey elements of the human story with no less immediacy. No prior musical training is required to approach these topics as a thoughtful listener.
