In this lesson, our instructor Cory Hills gives an introduction of dixieland, blues, and jazz. All three genres were linked to post-Civil War American history and originated from the South. Cory explains the characteristics of each genre before supplementing his lesson with musical examples. He concludes the lesson video with the influence that these three genres has made on art and mass media.
