There is an old joke among musicians (or at least guitarists): How does one persuade an electric guitarist to turn down the volume on his amplifier? Simple: Put written music in front of him! While many amateur musicians do very well with little or no knowledge of how to read music, a basic understanding of notation, rhythm, and harmony will contribute to a greater enjoyment of what you are hearing and playing, and will help you learn new music more quickly. This course will utilize musical examples from Bach to Billy Holiday, Beethoven to the Rolling Stones, and many others.
