More About Music (Part II)



Course Description

Have you ever wondered about what music was like before Mozart and Bach? Perhaps you have even thought of music in ancient Greece? You may have wondered why you find music of the twentieth century so baffling? Above all, do you feel that you would like to gain insight into the music you already love, and discover more of the same?

If you have asked yourself any of the above questions, this course is for you! No topic will be forgotten in this exhilarating 24-course journey into the history of our own musical culture. We will listen to a lot of music, discuss, read, and ponder the mystery that lies at the core of all great art.

Open your ears, open your mind and heart, and let the music start.

The course will be given by François A. Ouimet, musician, conductor, and pedagogue, who has been infusing his sessions at TMI with passionate and contagious enthusiasm for fifteen years.

Please note, that all courses have a maximum enrollment of 18 students.

Priority is given to students who pay upon registration.

For fully registered courses, a waiting list will be created. Should vacancies develop, those on the waiting list will be contacted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note that we do not allow participants to audit courses for free.
