History of Rock

One Term       Grades 9,10,11,12       Elective

Music often tells the story of a nation. The History of Rock studies popular musical styles from the early 1950’s to present day. We will explore the impact Rock and Roll had on American and British culture, and we will study contemporary American History as it was told through the music of our youth. Students will have several opportunities to create Garage Band compositions, study music marketing, and present projects on their favorite rock and roll artists.
