SUMMER 2020 INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE IN JANUARY
MUSIC HISTORY SUMMER WORKSHOP
Discover the styles, genres, composers and their masterworks that helped shape the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern eras and beyond! Inspired by the Royal Conservatory of Music’s curriculum, this in-depth exploration of the history of music will cover game-changing composers of their time, a selection of masterworks from each era, an expanded glossary of useful musical vocabulary, and more. After completing this course, students will have a much more comprehensive knowledge and understanding of classical music, its origins, and how it evolved to where it is today.
