What is that music? Have you ever wondered why different time periods have different styles of music or why you listen and enjoy certain types of music? In this course, we will have a quick overview of critical time periods and the music that resulted from (or triggered) the events of that time. You may find that your current ideas change or that beliefs about music that you have always held are correct.
