OBJECTIVES: The objective of this course is to provide students with the tools (i.e., descriptive language, terminology, concepts) with which to understand the elements of music (i.e. rhythm, melody, harmony, dynamics, tone, form, etc.) and appreciate those elements through the study of musical styles, listening, critical thinking, discussion and writing.
