UACC 217 Collaborative Studio: Creative Expressions in Rock and Pop Styles

1.5 - 3 credits undefined hours
200 level undergraduate course

Students will benefit from a comprehensive overview of rock and pop stylings. Looking at the timeline of creative diversity in rock and pop will add substance and depth to your chosen media, especially when relating to a contemporary audience. The course is open to anyone who is willing to express themselves. A wide range of vocal skills can be accommodated. (You don’t need to be an accomplished singer to create strong communication with vocal expressions. In some of the expressions, e.g., punk music, the performance art is the point, not the music.) We will study the natural progression of styles in the chronology of rock and pop musical artistic expression. Students will gain a basic knowledge of how and why rock and pop music evolved; sociologically, as a means of free expression, technologically, and ornamentally. Collaborative Studio engages students in cross-disciplinary and collaborative processes utilizing cooperative, interdisciplinary techniques and approaches to generate collaborative student processes and projects.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
