Dave Wilson: Gateways to Understanding Music

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:14 pm on 2 April 2019

How do we navigate the world of music - especially when so much of it is now at our fingertips?

Dave Wilson is a lecturer in Jazz Studies at Victoria University, and this question is something he tackles teaching introduction to music courses.

With his co-author Timothy Rice Dave has come up with a plan. In their book Gateways to Understanding Music they use 60 pieces of music as ways into musical traditions from all around the world from the mists of time up to today.
