New OpenLearn course from the Department of Music

a342_1_open_learn_figure3The Music Department is delighted to introduce a new short course, Music and its media, available free of charge through the Open University’s OpenLearn site. Authored by Helen Coffey, the course explores some of the ways music has been transmitted, considering music manuscripts in the sixteenth-century Low Countries, printed music in eighteenth-century London, and American sound recordings of the mid-twentieth century. The course offers a glimpse into the material studied in the department’s third-level module, A342: Central questions in the study of music.
