Music History Hour
April 15, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Music History Hour is geared toward adults that want to learn about music but are not necessary musicians or have any experience with music at all (but it would be enjoyable for anyone, I think!).
We will look at the basics of music literacy (rhythm, pitch etc) so that we have a common language to discuss elements of the music we listen to in the course in a more engaged way. And we will then explore different eras of music from 1600 to the present; the styles and genres and the cultural context in which they grew and the composers who pushed the timeline forward. And we’ll actively listen to audio examples that illustrate key concepts, or in-class performances of examples by yours truly on the piano.
Classes will be limited to a maximum of 8 people due to space, so it will be an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere with snacks and beverages provided as well!
Week One: Music Fundamentals and Active Listening
Week Two: The Baroque Era: 1600 – 1750
Week Three: The Classical Era: 1750 – 1825
Week Four: The Romantic Era: 1825 – 1900
Week Five: The Modern Era – 1900 – present
Week Six: Open discussion and performances of various pieces from these eras.
