MUS 8H HONORS MUSIC OF MULTICULTURAL AMERICA5 Units
A comparative and integrative study of the multicultural musical styles of the United States, this class explores the musics of Native Americans, European Americans, African Americans, Chicano/Latino Americans, and Asian Americans from their historical roots to the present.
