Designed for the non-music major, this course delves into the language of music through direct experience and creative activities. Students will develop musicianship skills by critically listening to recorded and live music, sight singing, improvisation, expressing music through movement, and composing melodies with basic harmonizations. When relevant, connections of music to other art forms will be encouraged and explored. At the end of the semester, each student will present a final project in the form of a composition and/or a performance. Emphasis on students' performing on their own instruments, where applicable.
