Welcome to our own MUS 702 Blog!

This is a new world for me, but I am very happy to have this tool that Andy has set up for us. Thank you Andy! Andy has his own blog "Music and Ideas" that he and a friend from IU, Kerry O'Brien, have been using to discuss new music and share ideas and information, which he can tell us about.
I am very excited about the possibilities of strengthening our "learning community" about music since 1968 through this resource. We will talk about how we can use it and how everyone can contribute and benefit from it. It is new territory for me, but, like you, I am here to learn.
Thanks again Andy.

Welcome to the Class!

Hello everybody,

I started this blog because as Dr. Brunner has mentioned, I have found that much more learning occurs outside of the classroom than during the few hours a week when we are actually in class. I thought that we could use this to discuss the readings and more importantly simply see where things take us from there. I think we may have some sort of "required amounts" of posts / responses, but this could be a great resource to link people to other sites that are relevant to the material we are discussing or reading about.

More soon!

Andy Bliss
