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.
