Class Experience

Students will learn basic musical terminology, including "theme" and "orchestration". We will practice critical thinking skills by discussing the evolution of John Williams as a composer and comparing and contrasting different musical scores. Learners will also practice listening and discussion skills by participating in guided discussions on different musical selections. 
I love teaching and discussing film music! As a classically trained musician, I enjoy introducing non-musical students to music terminology and guiding them in class discussions using their newly acquired vocabulary. Film music is a unique genre that has the ability to bridge the gap between musicians and non-musicians. John Williams is an especially interesting film music composer, as he has written the scores to some of the top-grossing movies of all time! I can't wait to meet your learners and introduce them to the exciting world of John Williams! 
No homework is assigned. Instead, students will be provided with a handout summarizing the material covered in class and offering additional resources for learners who wish to learn more. 
All materials are provided by the instructor.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No formal assessment will be completed. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All material is appropriate for teens.
