Virtual Conference, Virtual Workshop, and Online Instruction
We are proud to roll out our Virtual Conference, which features all of the lectures delivered here at the UR IPM since it was founded. In addition, we are introducing our Virtual Workshop, which includes videos drawn from our 2014 Music Educators Workshop. We hope this will be a useful resource for scholars, students, and fans of popular music. We are also making the instructional videos from John Covach's online course, The History of Rock, available here for streaming, in addition to several other videos.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the release of the Rolling Stones’ career-making hit “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.”
The song was the opening track on side two on the “Out of Our Heads” album, which was released in the US July 1965. The album was a hit in the US, staying on the charts for a record 66 weeks.
The UK version, which has six different tracks, was released in September of the same year and was only on the charts for 24 weeks.
The University of Rochester offers thirty one courses in popular music, ranging from American Musical Theater to Sound Design.
