Such courses may consist of lectures with either discussion sections or performance labs dedicated to offering hands-on instruction in support of the lectures. Some music cultures, such as Music 131A, Music of India, have dedicated course numbers. Music 139: Topics in Musics of the World is a generic course which can cover any one of a wide range of musical practices.

We also welcome courses that focus on musical cultures of the world other than those mentioned above.

Some courses may require supervision of discussion sections taught by graduate students.
