Impressionist music is not focused on form, rhythm, melody, or harmony, but  rather on washes of sound that create an “impression of a scene or a mood” The most Famous impressionist composer was Claude Debussy(1862- 1918).Came from a small town outside of Paris. Neither of his parents were musical but  Debussy became a pianist and started study at the Paris Conservatory at the age of 10.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
