I'm a sophomore majoring in Music and History of Science/Medicine/Public Health. I've been trained as a classical musician (my main instrument is the clarinet, and I'm learning organ), and I enjoy applying those experiences to pop music.

C4450: What is K-Pop? A Historical, Artistic, and Sociological Inquiry in Sprout Fall 2021 (Oct. 02 - 16, 2021)
Each class will examine what makes k-pop unique from a different perspective. The first class will explore different ways of approaching the history of k-pop (who's telling the history, the kinds of sources people use, etc). The second class will introduce students to multimedia studies and model how to conduct a multimedia analysis, especially focusing on music and choreography. The third class will focus on fan culture and often-asked question of why k-pop is so popular. The class will be enjoyable for both k-pop fans and people who've never encountered it.
