Text Forney, Christine and Joseph Machlis. The Enjoyment of Music: Essential Listening Edition. New York: Norton, 2008. *CD-Rom to accompany text also included *W.W. Norton has also published a website to accompany our book and this is extremely helpful: http://www.wwnorton.com/college/music/enj10/essentials/welcome.asp Objectives A. Develop a heightened appreciation of music. B. Develop the knowledge and skills to identify, through listening, the seven elements of music and make personal assessments of each. C. Develop the ability to recognize instruments, styles, and genres, and write about them appropriately in concert reports and/or listening assignments. Attendance and Tardiness Attendance will be taken every class meeting. If you are going to be absent, please notify me via email and be sure to ask your peers for missed notes, handouts, or homework. Note that attendance is added into your final grade, so submitting assignments alone will not account for a passing grade if you have not been present in class for a sufficient amount of time. Do not arrive to class late! This is rude and it disrupts your peers. Basic Rules -Turn off all cell phones during class time or place the ringer on silent. -NO TEXTING. Points will be taken off for texting if caught. If I notice excessive texting, you will be asked to leave the class. -No disruptive talking while the instructor is lecturing or a question is being asked. -Bring your book every day unless instructed otherwise. (We use the listening charts in your book just about every class meeting, and it is nice to have a reference handy for vocabulary terms). -Be respectful to all members of the class. Disability Statement Any student who feels s/he may need an accommodation based on the impact of a disability should contact me privately to discuss your specific needs. 1
