What we call "music appreciation" can only result from basic knowledge of its elements and how they interact in the art form. This course will present clear information about what makes music work, and what we're hearing when listening to music, regardless of genre, from Gregorian Chant to Beethoven to REO Speedwagon. Join us for an ear-opening study of the anatomy of music. It will change forever the way you listen.
