Foundations of Music
Foundations of Music can fulfill the Humanities credit required for a Regents diploma. Students will study the elements of music and use these in composing, performing, arranging, analyzing, evaluating and listening to a variety of musical styles. Students incorporate their individual musical goals into assignments and projects. Although it is not necessary to play an instrument, those students who sing, play a band instrument, piano, guitar, electric bass or percussion will be able to use their instruments in class. A variety of live instruments, music software, and recording technology will be used.
