Music is a part of all of our lives in one way or another. But what makes up music? Why does it speak to us the way it does? How does it connect human beings?
The Heart of Music will explore these questions and many, many more. Through listening, discussion, and exercises, students will learn what music really is, and how to get the most out of listening to it. We’ll cover some basic music theory and music history and examine the emotional, spiritual, mental,and physical impact different kinds of music can have on each of us.
Through recordings and live playing, we’ll gain a deeper understanding of our relationship with music and through it, with ourselves.
