Courses Offered in Music

History of Jewish Music (Rothman)
This course will explore the nature of music and how it has developed in Western cultures. Then, it will examine the breadth of Jewish music as it has developed over the centuries beginning in Biblical times. Since Jews have lived all over the world, their music reflects the cultures that they identified with, just as many of their customs took on the customs of the predominant culture. Secular, folk and liturgical aspects of Jewish music will be studied.

Jewish Art Music in Western Culture (Kushner)
The course will provide the student with a world view of Jewish music from its Biblical roots to modern Israel, and acquaint him/her with representative examples of art and liturgical music. The composers include Rossi, Halevy, Joachim, Schoenberg, Bloch, Milhaud, Copland, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Foss, Reich, Ben-Haim, Partos, and Avni. The pre-requisite is MUL 2010 or equivalent, or permission of the instructor.
