Elements and Eras: Music Through the Years

Description

Elements and Eras: Music Through the Years is a 12-week class in music appreciation designed for middle and high school students. In addition, upper elementary students may also enjoy the content. All twelve sessions are designed to build on each other; however, students may also enjoy taking a single class on a topic that interests them.

Please note: Although students will be encouraged to participate in discussion and share, this is not a performance based class. It is a class for listening and learning about history and styles. It is not a class to learn to play an instrument.

Over the course of all twelve meetings, we will explore topics in two main categories. 
The first category will cover the Elements of Music:
  • Pitch
  • Rhythm
  • Melody
  • Texture
  • Timbre
  • Harmony
The latter category of sessions will explore the Historic and Stylistic Eras of Music: 
  • Medival/Renaissance (500 AD. to 1600 AD)
  • Baroque (1600-1750)
  • Classical (1750-1825)
  • Romantic (1825-1900)
  • Modern Era (1900-2000)
  • PostModern (2000-present) 
All classes will involved discussion, presentation of information, and musical examples.

Reviews and Ratings

  • Colin had a great time in class! He loved the encouraging sound effects and the games to help him practice the notes. Colin can't wait to sign up for more recorder classes. :)
