This hands-on course deals with the aural, mental, and physical elements of music and its production.

It is divided into instructional segments including: Ear Training and Aural Perception, Music Theory, Basic Keyboard Skills, Arranging and Composition, and Basic Guitar Skills. This course is open to all students, regardless of musical experience.

The sole prerequisite is a desire to make music or simply to enrich one’s skills as a critical listener of music. Efforts are made to accommodate the special needs of the musical novice, as well as to challenge the experienced performer. Emphasis is on popular song styles, but analysis of Western Art Music forms are included for comparison purposes.
