About the Course
The Open course is accompanied by a set of audio files and links to music on the web. The language of music (notation, speed, dynamics, expression, style, form, melody, harmony, score writing, etc.) and the techniques of composition (musical ideas, how to come by them, how to develop them, how to build a substantial whole piece of music, etc.) are presented progressively throughout the course. The music of established composers is presented throughout the Open course with the aim of developing your ability to hear music by looking at what is written in a musical score.
The Open College of the Arts is a non-profit educational charity offering arts education through open and flexible distance learning methods.
