Join us this summer for a special course that combines music appreciation, language and culture to help you learn and master French!  

We will survey the most important genres of French music and meet the most important artists in francophone music and culture. An emphasis will be given to the song texts, as we will examine and learn from the lyrics to songs as well as enjoy the music itself! The instructor is Aaron Burns M.M., AFKC language center coordinator.

  • la musique classique / l’opéra / ballet 

  • le chanson française / la musique-pop
