Making Music in Los Angeles

University of California Press

This chapter discusses the gap between the arrival of American musical romanticism and the emergence of musical modernism during the first few decades of the twentieth century. Unlike previous reports, it introduces Los Angeles as the center of music in 1910, due to the fact that there were more musicians and music teachers working there than any other city in America. The chapter then goes on to explain the various topics studied in this book, which is concerned with music making and popular music during the Progressive Era, as well as the experiences and careers of several musicians. It also provides a brief overview of the three main parts of the book.

Keywords:   musical romanticism, musical modernism, Los Angeles, music making, popular music, Progressive Era
