FROM THE TEACHER

Music plays in the store, in the car, and in the ball park. Music is everywhere! How did we get popular music, and what makes pop music so popular? Do you stop to consider the elements of music? What makes a piece of music so interesting and enjoyable? Music appreciation explores the history and elements of music.
