Explore the basic tools of music structure with Ms. Mauch. She’ll show us how the three major aspects of music—melody, rhythm, and harmony—are organized and combined. She also offers to de-mystify terminology while explaining key systems, scales, building chords, rhythmic notation, interval relationships, and modulation (changing from one key to another). Listening to music examples of varying styles and compositions will enrich the instruction. OLLI and Ms. Mauch offer a fascinating journey deep into the basic elements of music, a world we just can’t resist, and no previous study of music is needed.
