Welcome to the class blog of CONS351WI, Early Music History at the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance. On the right hand side of the page you'll find a list of the students participating in the class this fall. Over the course of the semester, they'll be listening to music outside the textbook (and sometimes outside the norm) and writing about their research into and reactions to that music. They'll also be reading each other's writings and responding through comments and blog postings to what their colleagues are hearing. Join us as we create this online community devoted to music written before 1750. Read, listen, comment, ponder, but above all, open your ears to the echoes of the past.
This blog is designed for students enrolled in Writing Intensive courses through the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance to share their thoughts and reactions to the rich tradition of Western Music. Follow the blog links below to read on.
