Course Descriptions


 

Benefits of Joining Band

Music is a Science. It is exact, specific, and it demands exact acoustics. A conductor’s score is a chart, a graph with indicated frequencies, intensities, volume changes, melody, and harmony all at once and with the most exact control of time.

Music is Mathematical. It is rhythmically based on the subdivisions of time into fractions which must be done instantaneously, not worked out on paper.

Music is Foreign Language. Most of the terms are in Italian, German, or French; and the notation is certainly not English, but a highly developed kind of short hand that uses symbols to represent ideas. The semantics of music is the most complete and universal language.

Music is History. Music usually reflects the environment and times of its creation- often even the country and/or political feeling.

Music is Physical Education. It requires fantastic coordination and control of muscles which respond instantly to the sound the ear hears and the mind interprets.

Music is Immortal. It has been around since man first discovered he could organize the noise around him and create something which would transcend and uplift the human experience. Music shall live as long as there are ears and minds to listen and appreciate this art.

Music is Art. It allows a human being to take all these dry, technical techniques and use them to create emotion.
