  • Description

    What makes Bach a wonderful composer? Mozart was a genius, but what does it mean to be a genius? How did Beethoven transform his symphonies into monuments? Did music end with the Modern era? What are the differences and the similarities between the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern periods?

    Requiring no previous music theory knowledge, this course offers an insight into music composition, providing students the tools to enjoy and understand music beyond the surface level.  Activities will include examining the inner workings of music, discussing what musical features contribute to our understanding of style, and practicing critical listening.

    The School of Music's Community Music School is open to all members of the community. To register for the course, click here.

    Registration fees are $200 for the entire course (includes all class meetings). If you wish to register for an additional Community Music School course, each additional course is offered at a discounted fee of $150.

    Behind the Composition is taught by Diogo Carvalho. The class meets Wednesdays from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. July 10 - 31.
