Rock Music Academy

  • Top Music of the Rock Era: Special Topics in Heavy Metal
    • College of Music:  Explore, discuss, debate, and develop deeper understanding of Heavy Metal. This course is designed to introduce students to the musical, social and political contributions of heavy metal groups and artists.

      Heavy metal music is one of the most innovative and influential musical styles of the twentieth century. Many think of heavy metal music as simply an onslaught of wailing guitars, thunderous drums and high-pitched screams. Beneath the apparently rough surface lies a deeply expressive tradition grounded in musical virtuosity, cultural relevance, and social/political activism.

      In this course, students will discover the musical structures, technical prowess and potent lyrics of metal’s greatest acts. Additionally they will explore the history of censorship, rebellion, social defiance and revolution that characterize this important art form. Students will also study the formative influence of earlier styles such as baroque, classical, blues and hard rock as well as the mutual influence of contemporaneous styles like rap, art rock and funk.

      Note: This course is taught by the College of Music.
