Music 100 - The Fundamental of Music - Dr. Lydia Lee
|Course:||The Fundamental of Music|
|Professor:||Dr. Lydia Lee|
Welcome to the Fundamental of Music online course!
I am looking forward to spending this session with you as we journey toward understanding the basic concepts about music. This course is designed to teach students how to read and understand musical notes, rhythms, chords, tonality, and symbols.
MUSIC 100 is a fundamental course in music. Students will study basic music notation, recognition of scales, triads, rhythms, and understand basic musical language.
What to Expect in this Course
This course assumes little or no prior musical background. However, having this background will likely be helpful at different times throughout the course. You must have basic computer skills for completing this course and download/ install software such as Adobe Reade or a mobile scanning application (if you use your phone for this online course)
There is no required text book for this session, but you will be asked to engage in study of particular topics by viewing all of weekly instructions, completing weekly assignments (50% of your final grade) and taking online quizzes (50% of your final grade) on CANVAS. Please read the syllabus and announcements carefully for when assignments are due. Due dates are also listed in assignment instructions and the course calendar. Weekly contents will become available to you on the beginning of each week. (In advance, you may check-up the contents on weekends)
Please, log in at the beginning of the week for your attendance and follow the instruction to complete your 1st assignment (due by Thursday). If you have a question, please do not hesitate to email me at Lydia.firstname.lastname@example.org.

Other Relevant Course Information
The student, who does not view weekly on-line contents or not complete weekly assignments for more than one week, would be likely dropped or failed in this course. If you have an emergency or any difficulty, I urge you to discuss with me (leave a message to my “Inbox” on CANVAS), and then we can work it out together.
