    Welcome to general music! In this 10 week course we will be covering a variety of topics including music notation, rhythms, and African percussion instruments. I am looking forward to working with you this quarter.

    Class Participation: Your participation in general music accounts for a large part of your grade. Participation will be based on class discussions and other activities such as performing on rhythmic instruments. This ten week course is a performance-based class.

    Classwork/Evaluations: We will be learning about music notation, note reading, performing rhythms, and playing multiple part rhythmic patterns. There will be graded worksheets as well as performance grades in this course.

    Project: Each student is require to create a music project. It can be a model of an instrument, poster of an artist/group/composer, or a video project. Specific information will be given during the second week of the quarter!
