ロチェスター大学(University of Rochester) による History of Rock, Part Two の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



This course, part 2 of a 2-course sequence, examines the history of rock, primarily as it unfolded in the United States, from the early 1970s to the early 1990s. This course covers the music of Led Zeppelin, the Allman Brothers, Carole King, Bob Marley, the Sex Pistols, Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince, Metallica, Run-DMC, and Nirvana, and many more artists, with an emphasis both on cultural context and on the music itself. We will also explore how developments in the music business and in technology helped shape the ways in which styles developed. Emerging out of the experimental and ambitious years of late-60s psychedelia, rock splintered into a variety of styles in the 1970s as the music business continued to expand. By the end of the decade, punk and disco had challenged the excesses of the hippie aesthetic, as rock became more commercially streamlined and radio friendly. The emergence and rise of MTV transformed pop music and propelled the careers of Michael jackson and Madonna, while heavy metal and hip hop dominated the late 1980s. Nirvana leads alt-rock's return to simplicity in the early 1990s....




Fascinating - really filled out my knowledge and understanding and introduced me to new music - despite having lived through much of the history. Enjoyed the laid back but informed videos.



Continuing from Part One, the History of Rock course segues into the music scene of 70s and beyond. A thoroughly enjoyable course for anyone interested in any form of music in general.

Focused too much on non-rock styles, such as disco, rap, etc., but en large, pretty nice course.

It is a good course. However it is not better than its antecessor Part One. In many ways it is very US centric, without very good analysis of the British counterparts. Some lessons are very superficial, not going in deep.

Interesting content, though I would've preferred much less about rap/hip hop/etc, and more about rock.

It was a good course but I would have liked to see more about the 80's Glam bands.

T​oo much info and not enough music!

by Dimitrios V


The teacher tries desperatly to sell his book. The course is too long, with too many questions. I took a lesson about music and i did not hear any music at all.
