Adult Musicianship Classes

This six-class course is for those who are new to singing and reading music, and it will be tailored to the individual needs and goals of the participants. It will lay the foundation of musical skills though singing, reading, and writing a variety of notes and rhythms.  It will focus on singing and building aural skills through solfège in the major scale (do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do), with attention to common intervals (thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, and sevenths). It will build music literacy skills through quarter notes, eighth notes, sixteenth notes, half notes, dotted half notes, and whole notes. A variety of classical and popular songs, rounds, and music from the Odyssey Choir will serve as the repertoire to explore, learn, practice, and sight-read these notes and rhythms. In addition, participants will learn basic conducting patterns in simple meters of 4/4, 3/4, and 2/4. The following musical terminology will also be covered: clef, letter names of the treble clef, sharps, flats, staff, stem, note head, time signature, bar line, double bar line, repeat sign, cadence, fermata, staccato, tenuto, and accent.
