Music of Korea

Here you will find information on the course Music of Korea in the Department of Music and the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Pennsylvania.  

This course will survey the music of Korea with the goal of placing specific musical genres in cultural and historic contexts.  A wide-ranging approach will emphasize the diversity of Korea's musical styles, including court, folk, popular ("K-pop"), film, and contemporary classical music.  No prior knowledge in Korean language or culture is presumed.
