MUS 1 - Music History ONLINE

Welcome to Music History ONLINE !

In a very short time, you will have the opportunity to learn quite a bit of history of Western European music. You will study music of various eras and cultures, learn the differences between textures in music and begin to trace the development of today's music to its origins in Europe, Africa, and Asia. With practice, you will be able to speak about music in terms more complex than "I like that" or "That's boring." As a result of the readings, assignments, and music you will study, you may begin to discover WHY you like or dislike a certain music and be able to convey that in words.


To begin, you need the following:

The ACCESS CODE to the courseware website OnMusic History. Published by Connect For Education, Inc., distributed by McGraw Hill. This code is available online for $99.95. You will need a credit card to purchase the courseware. You can begin working online in the class within 5 minutes of purchasing the code.

The Access Code, which is necessary to take tests, is good for one-time use ONLY. This code is non-transferrable; ONLY YOU may use it.

Internet access. The faster the better, especially for the interactive listening player (Real Player or Shockwave) which you will need to download free and use with every listening example.



Once you have purchased the OnMusic History access code, follow the directions to register online with Connect4Education. Follow these instructions precisely and you will quickly be ready to begin. YOU MUST BE ENROLLED BY THE ADD DEADLINE in order to avoid being dropped as a no-show.

If you have a problem BEFORE you are able to log in, contact me at After you register your access code and are in the system, you may contact me from within the website.
