  • Vivaldi Four Seasons

    How does Vivaldi use "word painting" to depict each movement of the Four Seasons?  Use specific musical examples to answer this question.  By the way, you can post more than once after reading other people's answers.  Some of you haven't posted yet for Dido, Bach, etc.

  • General Questions

    Posted by on 9/5/2009 3:46:00 PM

    In this class, you will be expected to do a lot on your own.  With that being said, I will also expect you to help each other out.  This is the place you'll be able to do that.  This is where you can post any kind of general questions you have about the course, the exam, or any kind of theory questions.
