An eclectic & passionately curated set of topics guaranteed to inspire musicians and non-musicians alike.
One of the fastest ways for you to develop musically is to sharpen and broaden your listening. Our playlist includes artists as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Yo Yo Ma, Brad Paisley, Muse, John Coltrane, and Art Lande who all create very different worlds. And yet, how you listen will determine your ability to feel the deeper commonalities in their various styles. We’ll use several non-traditional ways of listening that will get you inside the music such as the brightness, temperature, imagery, and the basic elements of each piece.
Students will have the opportunity to share their experiences and insights with the group in an interactive ZOOM environment.
