FPA 209 - Women in Music


Women in Music considers, examines and debates the role of women in music both as practitioners and patrons. The course takes an historical journey that enables the student to see the changing roles of women in society as well as the prejudices against women in the arts as well as the strides made by women composers and performers. Patrons of the arts are included as well in the course which envelopes contemporary musical styles in addition to concert and folk music. The focus is on music produced in the Western countries, although some time will be spent on the role of women in music in non-Western cultures.
