The Anatomy of Music: Basic (and Not So Basic) Music Theory for Everyone

Thursday, June 6, 2013
(This program continues for multiple sessions)
Thursdays, June 6 – August 15 (class will not meet July 4)

2 – 4 pm

Led by Stephen Kleiman

In this class, musical questions you have always wanted to ask will be answered. A witty textbook and entertaining exercises will guide us from basic concepts to more complex elements of music, including the instruments of standard ensembles like the string quartet and the symphony orchestra. This class is designed for music enthusiasts rather than musicologists.

Stephen Kleiman holds an M.M. in music composition from the University of Michigan and was an orchestra conductor in Europe and music director of the National Chamber Orchestra in Washington, D.C. A CD of his chamber music was released this spring.
