MUSC 310  Philosophy of Music  (4 Credits)  
Philosophy of Music will help students reflect more deeply on their experiences of music. Many people experience music as emotion and are left with an overall impression; some may also recognize styles and contexts in more detail. But few have thought systematically about what music is, whether music possesses meaning, and, if so, how that meaning is conveyed or expressed. These are central issues in the philosophy of music and in this course. We will begin by giving some attention to the history of musical aesthetics to develop a context for the questions to be broached, but the greatest emphasis will be on exploring the nature of musical experience in the context of our world today. The course will present divergent philosophical theories that will be considered with respect to a wide range of music including Western “classical” music, music of non-Western cultures, and the popular music of today.

MUSC 334  Music as Communication – Building Communities between campus and Kenya  (4 Credits)  
This course combines classroom learning at CSB/SJU during CD mod and ends with an experiential component abroad. Kenya is a musically vibrant and diverse country. From traditional music (religious, ceremonial, motivating songs that accompany work, entertainment) to popular music (sung in any and all languages), music in Kenya is inseparable from life. Although we will read about Kenyan music and listen to specific recordings in class, its movement and energy is best understood through participating and communicating with others in group settings. Through weekly guest workshops on campus and informal “no-experience-necessary” music making experiences in Kenya, we will learn to feel and live the music elements we will study in class. Attendance at formal and informal concerts on campus and abroad will help the listener make unique distinctions between “audience” and “artist” in both countries. In order to better understand the environment and community that supports and inspires the variety of music and culture we will take excursions throughout the city of Nairobi (Nairobi National Museum, Karura Forest, recording studio, Bomas of Kenya, rumba music and dance, United Nations, safari at Nairobi National Game Park), and into the county (Rift Valley, Giraffe Center, Elephant Orphanage). Finally, we will interact with other college students from DayStar University in Nairobi as they host our visit in May and as we host their visit to CSB/SJU in March.
