This course will give you a biological background of music - why do we like certain tones and scales, and how does it relate to our social and genetic background.

This course will give you a biological background of music - why do we like certain tones and scales, and how does it relate to our social and genetic background. The underlying idea is that music we like is similar to human vocalization patterns, and you'll get a nice idea of how we process different scales, which physical attributes are the most important ones, and how do animals do as well. Instructor gives clear lectures, and slides are useful, along with additional reading. Do note that this is a neuroscience course, not a musical theory course, but there will be some musical theory demonstrations, and additional material is available for your perusal as reading or video that demonstrate the musical-theory concepts used. All in all, an interesting and a quite different course.
