Music Studies introduces students to a wide spectrum of musical styles and compositional devices with an emphasis on listening to and speaking about music and its connection to all of the arts. The first semester will concentrate on key elements of music including melody, rhythm, harmony, form, texture and timbre. The second semester includes work on contemporary song forms, opera, and the origins of African-American music. Throughout the year, actors will have the opportunity to engage with music students and outside musical guests.
