Writing About Music - OLET1811

Year - 2020

This OLE unit of study will provide foundational knowledge in these areas. It will be useful to students without knowledge of music notation or even music theory. It will use both well-known and obscure examples, from Western and non-Western music, from historical to contemporary genres. This deliberately eclectic approach ensures that concepts can be related by students to all forms of music, not just those with which they are familiar.

Classes
4weeks of online lectures + online or in person weekly tutorials

Assessment
4 x weekly tutorial tasks (40%), 1 x presentation + 600wd write up (60%)
