Additionally, students will engage with the genre more deeply by either a) exploring the performance demands and stylistic requirements of the genre through the workshopping and presentation of representative songs from each era; or b) studying specific aspects of the genre through academic research and stylistic study. Students choosing the performance option should have participated in at least 1 semester of MUSP 001 , MUSP 011 , or MUSP 113 . S. (Alternate years; Not offered 2022–23.) (Group IV)
