In order to make this website as content-rich as possible, I am including information on topics of music history. The following are very general Power Point presentations on the basics of the major periods that come under the erroneous heading of “classical” music. This particular series was created for the purpose of accompanying workshops for students and music teachers in China, and deal with a variety of Western musical periods, styles and genres. I hope to augment them with more in-depth investigations into specific types of music, both ancient and modern. Check in regularly to see what other materials will be available.
