Music Theory (MTHR100)
0.5 (semester course)
Music Theory is a one-semester course geared to music students who want to deepen their understanding of how music works. Students can expect to expand their knowledge of music elements, then use that knowledge to create an original work guiding young students to compose a song, perform a song with the purpose of spreading kindness, respond to performances through a project of their choice, and connect to a variety of musical experiences.
