What you will learn

How does a musical composition take you from the beginning to the end, producing a satisfying, sometimes thrilling experience? Your ability to appreciate it depends on perceiving many elements at the same time: rhythm, melody, harmony and musical structure.  This course will give you tools to better appreciate the magical world of music.  

Happy Birthday Beethoven!: April 9- 28

Musical New York: May 7 - 28

New York City has long been one of the music capitols of the world. Starting long before the days of Duke Ellington and Artie Shaw, New York has given birth to dozens if not hundreds of memorable bands. In this class, we will discover great music by composers and musicians who have lived and worked in New York City. Such musical greats as George Gershwin, Antonin Dvorak, Duke Ellington and Celia Cruz have filled the air of New York with their timeless music. Class Timeline: May 7-28, 2020
