MUS 330R - Steel Band

Students should be exposed to music outside the Western European tradition. Most of the music performed in this ensemble includes Calypso and Soca styles from the island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. We will sometimes include a pop or classical number, but most of the time we will focus on "groove" music. This means that having a conductor will be rare and the student is expected to listen and learn how to contribute to that "groove".
