As we start this semester, please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the layout and content of this class blog.  This site will serve as a resource for you throughout the semester.  Sometimes I will tell you when you need to visit the site and post comments.  However, I expect that you’ll visit frequently on your own to check out updates, read your classmates’ comments, and look for readings/video clips.

If you’d like a review of the music theory basics we covered in the first class, please check out the Theory tab at the top of the page.
