Musical Beginnings is a Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies class taught by Rebecca Miller.

Course Description

This course focuses on the broad fundamentals of western music and music theory, including music literacy (how to read western music notation). We will learn theoretical concepts (pitch, rhythm, timbral nuances, texture, intervals, chords, harmony, etc.) and develop our sense of aural music cognition through ear training. This course will connect music to theory by teaching students how to compose music and by performing on instruments the basic theoretical concepts covered throughout the course. No prior music training or literacy is required. There will be weekly homework assignments and collaborative composition projects; in addition, students are required to attend an evening ear-training workshop (either Monday or Thursday) once a week from 7-9pm.
