Instructor comments:

We'll meet at the allotted class time via Zoom! I'll email all students with a meeting link and password before the start of classes. The link will also be provided on the course Desire2Learn site.

Students will need manuscript/staff paper (I'll provide a PDF on Desire2Learn) or access to a notation software (MuseScore and Noteflight are great free options!).

In this course, we'll read a few academic articles and listen to some podcast episodes. Students will need a relatively quite place for listening, reflecting, and writing!
