About This Course

This is course is under development during fall 2019. It is expected to be completed by the end of the years, but it is available for early enrollment now, and I am uploading content as I complete it.

I am currently teaching a university course on similar material and am developing this online course in conjunction with that. So the first materials you are seeing are the handouts that we are using in class. Gradually I will be posting the worksheets and video lectures as well, so that by the end of the semester, you can expect to see the equivalent of a full semester course at a music school. Actually, considerably more than that - I am developing more material for this online course than I will have time to cover in person.

When complete, each lesson in this online course will feature:

  • a video lecture to present the material
  • a handout for reference
  • a worksheet for practice
  • an area for discussion to facilitate collaborative learning among students

The course materials are designed to be accessible to blind and visually impaired students and are being used successfully already by a blind student in my college course. I will provide more information on the accessibility as we develop the content.
