Welcome to the COMPLETE HISTORY OF MUSIC, PART 2!
This class is for anyone who has wondered about the origins of music, how it came to be, and where it came from.
In this course, we will look at the world during the renaissance (approximately 1300 - 1600), through the lens of music. This period begins with the church dominating most music, but ends with "the reformation", in which many churches split off from the catholic church, which had a big impact on the music in those churches. We will also look at what was happening outside of the churches musically, including songs, instruments, minstrels, choirs, and more.
While a lot of history courses focus on memorization, this is a course for those interested in immersing themselves in the music and culture. You won't find lists of dates to memorize here - this class is designed to be fun and enjoyable.
This is the first part of a multiple-course series.
In this course, we will focus the entire course on the renaissance period.
By the end of this course, if you follow along, you will be ready to move on to the Baroque period - coming in part 3!
