What is music? What makes good music? What is happening when something in a piece of music changes? In Music at Work, we will work our way through these questions and many more. Students will get experience engaging with sheet music and musical notation. They will learn to discuss music on a technical as well as emotional level. We will use the work of contemporary musicians such as Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, and Drake, as well as classical musical examples, film scores, and the work of experimental composers like John Cage to analyze what is actually going on in a piece of music.
Homework will include some basic note writing, We will seek and revel in the aspects of music that bring us joy, and recognize which aspects do not and why.
