You may or may not play an instrument. It doesn’t matter. What matters is how you think, how you hear, how you communicate, and your willingness to adapt that knowledge to the musical field. We will learn to listen to music, talk about music, improvise music, write music, write about music, read music, and read about music, but most of all we will learn to collaborate to make music unique to the class and the individuals in it. No matter what your background, come prepared to play.
Corequisite: Must participate in Music Workshop (Tuesday, 6:30-8pm). Students must also register for the lab, MFN2110L. Two-hour small-group music labs will be scheduled after the first week.
