(sarcasm on)... Have you simply had enough of learning about; music theory, scales, chord construction and improvisation? Of course you have! Besides, in today's world of computer generated synth-loops and drum-machine algorithms who needs that boring compositional junk anyway.
Well, you'll be glad to know that arts professors have been working with furrowed brow to help you move into the next level of high-quality musicianship by dreaming up incredible new music courses to move you & your skills into the next musical century... (sarcasm off).
Enter, Skidmore College, in Saratoga Springs, New York. They are the latest liberal arts school that will be offering an entire class dedicated to the study of whacky American pop stars... their course is on none other than pop queen of twerking - Miley Cyrus!
'The Sociology Of Miley Cyrus' is being taught by Professor Carolyn Chernoff and will focus on Miley’s transition from “a Disney tween... to global drug-addict /twerking machine.”
Students will study topics such as; gender stratification, hyper-commodification of childhood, transitions to adulthood, allies and appropriation, bisexuality, queerness, and the female body!That's right... no modes, harmonic minor or pitch-axis theory whatsoever here!!!
Check out the official flyer for the class (below)!
What will be the next college music course! Why not let students MAJOR in Miley!
And, if Miz Cyrus doesn’t offer the kind of curriculum you’re looking for, then maybe applying to Rutgers and taking the Beyoncé course would be more in tune with your musical studies!That one not for you? Then how about, "Lady Gaga and the Sociology of the Fame", at the University of South Carolina!
