  • Description

    What makes Bach a wonderful composer?  Mozart was a genius, but what does it mean to be a genius?  How did Beethoven transform his symphonies into monuments?  Did music end with the Modern era?  What are the differences and the similarities between the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern periods?  Requiring no previous music theory knowledge, this course offers an insight into music composition, providing students the tools to enjoy and understand music beyond the surface level.  Activities will include: examining the inner workings of music, discussing what musical features contribute to our understanding of style, and practicing critical listening.  This class needs a minimum enrollment of 5 people in order to be confirmed.
