Introduction to Classical Music

Written 4 years ago
I thought I was going to learn a bit about western classical music, but I learnt an huge amount about 'music' as a whole. Craig Wright is an engaging and enthusiastic teacher. He has inspired me to learn more about medieval music. I've downloaded the course and have referred to it many times when studying other music MOOCs. Brilliant!

From Notation to Performance: Understanding Musical Scores

Written 4 years ago
Even if you think a quaver is a crispy cheesy snack that comes in crackly packets, you can learn to find your way round even an orchestral score. It takes a bit of practice, but it turns out to be quite easy! Lots of interesting interviews and performances, too. And there's not one mention that a quaver is also a musical note!

Fundamentals of Music Theory

Written 4 years ago
This is fundamentals, not an introduction. My music knowledge was not good enough to complete the course this time, but I've downloaded it and I'm still making progress. A fabulous course. I'll do it again for sure - and perhaps be able to finish it this time.

How to Write Your First Song

Written 3 years ago
Fabulous course. The emphasis is on music rather than lyrics. The 'lyrics' are provided by poet Matt Black, to use as you see fit. The song writing process is broken down into its basic elements with wonderful interviews with performers and video demonstrations. There are also excellent interviews with songwriters and producers, And Martin Simpson, folk singer/songwriter and stunning guitarist, writes his song along with you, laying bare his process. You'll listen to wide variety of music, and you can share your own music with fellow students.
