Developing Your Musical Intuitions: The Language of Classical Music: U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance, Youth & Adult Community Programs.

  community member   < less SMTD logo

If you love classical music, you probably have a great deal of tacit knowledge about music, even if you have never played an instrument or learned to read musical notation. This course will enable you to access that knowledge by examining some of the fundamental aspects of aural experience, including memory and expectation, musical ambiguity, and feelings of tension and release. Although instructional materials will be provided for those who wish to progress further on their own, even those with no formal musical training and no knowledge of musical notation will enjoy this course. In a series of eight ninety-minute lectures, the course will use powerful and memorable musical events to generalize about musical grammar and logic, featuring works that are familiar to many classical music enthusiasts, such as Beethoven's "Emperor" Concerto and Chopin's "Revolutionary" Etude, all of them played live at the piano by the instructor, Professor Kevin Korsyn of the University of Michigan SMTD.

A Virginia native currently living in Rhode Island, McKeown is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter known for her distinctive guitar style, her droll, understated lyrics, and her eclectic mix of musical styles, from 40s swing, cowboy jazz, and contemporary funk to Tin Pan Alley and folk-rock. Her new CD, Manifestra, is a collection of sharply observed and musically engaging political satires. "[McKeown] understands the halls of power as well as the mechanics of song structure and the ensnaring power of propulsive rhythm," says Paste critic Holly Gleason. "As she picks you up, sweeps you away, suddenly you realize how much wool is being pulled over your eyes. And you can dance to it." Opening act is Jenn Grant, a highly-regarded young pop-folk singer-songwriter from Halifax.
