Music History for Young Musicians

Music History

This course aims to deepen the student’s appreciation of music by grounding the greatest pieces in the canon of Western classical music in their historical context, and by introducing and continuing the foundational musical concepts of notation, rhythm, pitch, form and melody to give a fuller understanding of the inner workings of the pieces and of music in general.

Students will learn how to analyze and listen to pieces of music and will be able to demonstrate the musical concepts discussed within this course.

A love of classical music is only partially a natural response to hearing the works performed, it also must come about by a decision to listen carefully, to pay close attention.
