Winter Session: 6 Weeks: February 7 – March 17, 2023.
Tuesdays on Zoom from 1 – 2 PM EST. Class dates are February 7, 14, 21, 28 and March 7 and 14.
Through Music, this course will un tap a new source of creativity that will expand your artistic comfort zone to a brand new self-affirming level. Being process-based, you will discover and express yourself through your unique musical voice. The course is in two parts: Music Analysis (MA), and Music Creation (MC). During the MA section, you will design your own analysis system based on a comparative observation of 3-5 works of any genre. For the MC section, based on what you developed (i.e., your personal music algorithm) in the MA section, you will create 1-3 short songs. Please note: while it is helpful to have, you don’t need any prior musical knowledge to take this course. However, for the music creation part of the course, you will be asked to share your new musical work(s) with the class through your choice of media, instrument, or voice. Preparation and extra support, through individual communication and resource lists, will be available throughout the course, and especially for the music-sharing at the last class.
