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.

Boundaries of the Self, Learn Ways to Strengthen & Regulate Your Boundaries: Carole Kirby, lmsw.

  community member   < less

Our boundary is the invisible protective screen that develops around the self to hold our developing self intact as children & is a very important aspect of our adult selves as well. Throughout our lives our boundaries determine our sense of self-esteem, our self-confidence, our sense of control over our lives & our personal freedom.
With clearly defined boundaries, we know our own thoughts & feelings, and in turn, are able to interpret & regulate our interactions with others. Boundaries can become blurred through boundary invasion or boundary neglect.
