This course is designed for those who want to learn how to make music together with others. The course work combines a study of contemporary popular music, in terms of form, style, and instrumentation, with a review of practical music theory and the development of functional musicianship skills. Students have the opportunity to apply what they have studied by performing in class on their own compositions as well as on compositions written by their classmates and the course instructor. In addition, each student will write and bring in for class discussion, a short paper on a musical topic of special interest to them. This course is appropriate for any student interested in furthering their understanding of music in general and contemporary popular music specifically. Access to a keyboard or guitar is recommended. The workshop meets in a professional, fully equipped, music studio where students have access to a wide variety of musical instruments. [$35 fee]
