Upon completion of this class, students will be able to describe the evolution of popular music from the 1940’s to the present day.  They will also discuss how cultural and social elements are reflected in music, demonstrate an ability to identify individual rock music styles, detect the value of music in everyday life, and identify the names and contributions of key rock personalities.
