"Drum Lessons"

Music Composition for the Young Artist

Jacob Richter
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(2)
Students will study the building blocks of music and great compositions of the past as they discover the tools to shape their own artistic voice.

Class experience

Students will gain tools to express their own creative voice through music. They will also examine great pieces of music in an analytical light, gaining new insights on why they love (or hate!) what they're listening to. The course is broken down into thirds:

In Harmony/Melody we will discuss: 
1) The 12 equal tempered pitches
2) Intervals
3) Scales as collections of intervals
4) The modes of the major scale
5) Harmony as chord/scale relationships
6) Common harmonic moves and the overtone series
7) Harmony as scale to scale modulation
8) Common Alterations to the major scale
9) Melody as the scale over the chord
10) Advanced harmony as stacked intervals

In Rhythm we will discuss:
1) Essential rhythmic terms
2) Rhythm as ratios
3) Western Notation, its limitations and advantages
4) Dividing up a piece: section/form, phrase, measure, beat, and subdivision
5) Traditional rhythms from a variety of cultures

In Listening we will discuss:
1) A variety of pieces based largely on the student's musical interests
2) Great compositions of the past
3) Other compositional concepts including contrast, instrumentation, orchestration, dynamics, lyrics, sound production, and much more.
Students will need their computer, and some way of making music. This class is designed to be very open ended, and students will be expected to be creative in finding ways to present their music for the final project. It could be as simple as a ukulele and iphone mic.
