Over the course of seven 2-hour interactive sessions, Denis will present and discuss music from a wide range of cultures and time periods. Together we will listen to, and consider, how music works its way into the deepest places of our human hearts.

We will look at music through five primary "windows": Melody, Rhythm, Harmony, Texture, and Form. Through the process of considering these components independently of each other, the listener (you) will start to become more aware of how music is put together, and how it works its magic.  You will go deeper into the mystery of how you, as a particular listener, with your unique background and experiences, interacts with what is being performed. And maybe even why you like what you like!

This course is for anyone. No previous training in music is required, and any technical language will be minimal, and explained. And, if you already are a musician working in any genre, or at any level, these explorations are designed to enhance your present working knowledge of music.

Details

Sessions will be held on the Zoom platform on seven consecutive Wednesday evenings, Oct.14 through Nov.25, 6:30 – 8:30 PM (Pacific). For more information please contact [email protected]. Maximum enrollment: 48; minimum enrollment: 20. 

I will be presenting numerous music selections with participants via the Zoom “sharing” feature, which streams audio files directly. Note: in order to get the true sound from my computer to yours you will need either a good speaker system or good headphones or ear buds. The speakers on a tablet, by themselves, will not be satisfactory.

I will also be sharing resources including annotated music lists and background information. Each week I will leave registrants with guided suggestions for further on-line listening.
