Classical Genres

8 week music appreciation course for adults

Ever wondered what a symphony actually is? Can’t tell a suite from a sonata? This course is designed for classical music beginners who want to know how to better appreciate the music they listen to. Several common types of classical music will be explored, including symphony, concerto, sonata, suite, opera and oratorio. Each week will begin with a simple explanation, move into a deeper exploration of examples by great composers, and finish with guided listening through a full example. No musical knowledge is necessary.
