Nurture valuable skills in music analysis and discrimination with this thoughtful program. The presentation includes informative historical segments and two in-depth musical field trips.

Topics covered include harmony and fugue, jazz improvisation as a musical form, and the social and individual meanings of music. Outlining a range of musical forms, functions, and traditions, this program will inspire your students to reflect on this art form's deep and abiding connections to human experience.
