Welcome to Music History! Join this ongoing course to learn about the world of classical music, from the canonical works of the European classical tradition, to international styles, to modern trends in global classical music. Stop by to learn more about your favorite piece, or stay for multiple weeks to gain a broader understanding of the importance of classical music traditions. This class is open to all students; no musical experience is required. Check out the schedule below for upcoming...
Students will listen to historically and culturally significant pieces of art music and learn about why they are important with a trained music historian. Learners are presented with broader trends within the historical period being examined, how the piece of music fits within that trend, and listen to other pieces that come from the same tradition.
I have a Bachelor of Music degree in classical piano performance and Master's degrees in music history and music theory. I have taught music from PK-12 and my experience has helped me to create classes that help learners get excited about classical music. I have a passion for presenting music in ways that get learners engaged in what they are listening to and interested in exploring the vastness of classical repertoire.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please make sure your student is using a device with a working camera. Learners are required to turn their camera on once at the beginning of class for verification purposes, per Outschool Policy. After verifying, students can turn off the camera if they are more comfortable with it being off.
