This course will challenge students to investigate what music is and how it works. We will explore the foundations of musical sound; learn to read, write and interpret musical notation; and develop an understanding of basic musical building blocks: pitch, intervals, scales, keys, chords, rhythm, tempo, timbre, and form. Building on these foundations, students will embark on more creative challenges: writing two-voice counterpoint, harmonizing a melody and writing original compositions. Lessons will involve practical application to real-world examples from both popular and Western Classical music.
NOTE: Acceleration Courses advance through one full year level over a single summer. Students should be prepared for a fast-moving experience with a significant workload.
