If you’ve always wanted to learn the language and elements of musical notation and composition, this interactive online course led by music educator and conductor Ernest Johnson offers the perfect opportunity.

Johnson guides exercises and assignments geared to developing the foundation every musician needs: the aural and visual understanding of pitch, rhythm, harmony and form. Topic areas include an overview of the elements of music and music terminology; notation of pitch and rhythm; ear training: developing the ability to hear, identify, and notate pitches, intervals, melodies, and chords. A variety of audio and musical score clips are presented to support lesson material.

The course includes a variety of online and print resources to support and enhance musical learning, including an interactive workbook, Alfred’s Essentials of Music Theory, and a subscription to the Noteflight Learn website. Optional assignments are given each week. Students use online music software programs to notate and hear musical elements presented in each session. Basic computer skills are required.

Limited to 20 students.
