Are you an instrumental musician looking for an outlet to express your love of music? This may be the course for you. We will explore a variety of music genres from classical to pop, jazz and more. Musical structure, instrumental voices, keys and mood, rhythm, interpretation, dynamics and articulation will be the focus of presentations and demonstrations. There will be opportunities to play individually if you wish. Unfortunately, as this is a Zoom class, we will not yet be able to play as a group because of electronic latency (delay). We will, however, examine ensemble awareness.

Instructors/Coordinators: Rayleen Williams and Tom Stachelek
