This Course is open to any and all students hoping to learn more about music who have limited [or no] experience reading music and limited or no experience studying music theory. The class will explore music notation through small composing assignments. We will also explore the basics of music theory, will study some of the high points of music history, with an emphasis on 20th and 21rst century music, and will do some open-ended creative assignments involving improvisation and the creation of music without notation. The course has no prerequisites. Those with previous experience performing as singer or instrumentalist are welcome, but previous experience is not required.
Corequisites: attendance at 6 music workshops
