Course content

Music 2 expands on elements from Music 1 to continue to present different perspectives to aid students personal growth as a dance artist. Music courses will incorporate a range of teachers and practices that deepen knowledge of percussion techniques, complex rhythmic combinations, time signatures, playing together, recording rhythms, performing simple body percussion, singing, percussive thinking, translating rhythmic combinations in the body through the use of scores and improvisation assignments. Students will be encouraged to think of their relationship to musicality and rhythmicality and how they relate their expressive choices to the sound used.
