NOTE: The first ten lessons of this course are ready. You are welcome to start the sample lessons now; more will be added each month. This is an experimental class for us in that we are combining videos, written materials, and quizzes in a new way. We would appreciate you giving feedback about your experience in our Music subject group or on this brief survey.
Take an exciting tour through the development of Western music. This new online class merges the history of composers and their works with engaging video performances. It also provides audio playlists and recommendations for building your own listening library of classical music.
We designed this course for students without any musical training. But it can also provide a robust historical guide for music students wanting to connect the dots between periods, composers, instruments, and performance styles.
The course could fill a fine arts elective for high school students, provide a handy chronological reference for parents who want curated playlists for family listening, or serve as a pre- or post-concert guide to your next family musical outing.
- In-depth written materials on each musical period and composer of note through the beginning of the twentieth century
