Students will experience the joy of making music by learning to play guitar. Students will also study the fundamentals of rhythm, harmony, timbre, texture, form, and pitch as they develop their ability to play these instruments. They will be introduced to musical notation as well as ‘playing by ear.’ This class is for non-musicians as well as for students with previous musical experience.
