This course aims to create new pathways through music appreciation while empowering students to develop a deeper understanding of the various genres that have influenced the way we dance today.



  1. Develop musical awareness. 
  2. Explore musical genres through eras and styles influencing pop culture/Hip Hop.
  3. Passive listening for enjoyment and active listening for reflection.
  4. Understand the lineage and identify artists, songwriters, and composers who contributed their genius to today’s musical landscape.
  5. I am using historical and cultural context to deepen your understanding of dance.

*Hip Hop is now the leading genre in the charts. It was previously held by rock music.
