At the end of the course students - who do not require a previous disciplinary competence - will have acquired knowledge and awareness on the main aspects of language, genres, and protagonists of European and North-American music from the 18th to the 21st century, with particular reference to social implications and relationship with other artistic forms.
Knowledge and understanding:
students will develop knowledge and understanding skills through the constant use of different sources (sound and multimedia materials, books and articles of scientific, educational and informative nature, conferences, seminars, guided visits to museums, theatrical, concert and orchestra institutions).
Applying knowledge and understanding:
students will be able to apply their knowledge and understanding skills to critically consider their experience as music users, to reflect on the historical roots and the evolution of music as an artistic expression. The application of such knowledge and skills will be particularly useful for students in the educational, literary and artistic fields, who will complete their disciplinary training with concepts and notions generally not covered by lower levels of the school system.
students will develop the ability to collect and interpret data useful to formulate independent judgments, critically reflecting on the current reality and on the historical reasons that have determined it. In particular, they will be able to critically consider their personal experience, evaluate the reliability of sources and information, and integrate the acquired knowledge in a conscious way.
the student will put to good use the work done on the contents together with the teacher and the other students to develop the ability to communicate clearly and well-founded his personal experience and his reflections both during the lessons and during the exam and in non-educational context towards specialists and non-specialist interlocutors.
thanks to the approach to the subject, which tends to problematic reflection and aims at developing a critical sense with respect to the current reality, the student will develop the stimuli and skills needed to increase their knowledge through further non-occasional studies and even independently conducted.
