Potter JThe History of Popular MusicIn history courses music is often ignored as an art form with the exception of its mention, for example Jazz, during the Harlem Renaissance. Music plays a large role in the lives of most Americans, particularly young people, and has from our origins in the Seventeenth Century. This will obviously be a quick survey considering the the several hundred years that will be covered. Considering the time constraints the emphasis will be on the the music of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.
