Interested in classical music but don’t know how to start? Been listening for a while but need some guidance?

This course provides a framework for understanding classical music, examining the major periods of music history, the music of the great composers, and the main classical genres.

Each week we will listen to some works and examine their historical, social and musical context. You'll be able to explore your own taste in music and learn how to find more of what you like. No musical knowledge is necessary.
