Music composition course offered this fall online

Instructor Tammy Willis is seeking budding songwriters or those who want to write their own musical compositions to take her course, MUS A111 Fundamentals of Music, this fall.

According to Willis, the course will be taught from a compositional perspective designed to teach students the basics of musical concepts such as rhythm, melody, harmony, form and structure.

“The class is perfect for people wanting to learn to read music or compose their own creative works regardless of your level of musical experience. As an online course, beginning students as well as advanced students will be able to work at their own pace while receiving one-on-one composition lessons to help students learn to apply what they are learning to their own original musical composition,” said Willis.

Register for the course today at UAOnline using the course reference number (CRN) 77155. For more information call 262-0275 or email tdwillis@kpc.alaska.edu.
