Classes to Consider Next Term
MUS 017 • Music of the World

Music 017 is primarily a survey course, however, we offer "hands-on," interactive class activities so that students can get a real sense of what it means to learn and perform music from around the world. These instruments were hand-crafted by a team of pan builders and tuners under the direction of Ellie Mannette. Ellie, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, was considered to be the "father" of the steel pan art-form. His drums, that are made from 55-gallon oil barrels, represent the newest family of acoustic instruments in the world. Listen to them here
