Sing (MUS2148.01)

Kerry Ryer-Parke & John Kirk

We will gather once a week to learn and sing rounds, chant, chorales, work songs, protest songs, sea chanteys, Sacred Harp, and folk songs and dances from around the world. The goal is purely the joy of singing as a community. No performances. Evaluation is by attendance and participation only. We will use our ears and simple notation to learn the music- no previous singing experience is necessary. Students are especially encouraged to bring in songs from their own traditions to teach the class.

Learning Outcomes:
Students will sing with others as a community building activity
Students will explore a wide variety of musical styles and traditions
Students will learn to harmonize and to sing by ear and explore basic music notation
