What will students do in this class?

  • They will bring examples of music they enjoy, which can be from a wide variety of genres, and examine what makes them compelling. 

  • They will choose one piece together to deconstruct and then reconstruct by re-arranging or composing new material to make it into something new.

  • This process gives them the opportunity to learn the skill of collaboration, a skill that is highly sought after, especially with competition and extreme self-reliance being the norm in our society.

  • They will collaborate to create and rehearse new music. 

  • Through this process, they will learn musical concepts including harmonic progressions, texture, voicing, and instrumentation
