On November 28th, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm (EST), I will, once again, be leading my workshop, Music Literacy for Content Creators.
This is a class/discussion which is designed to help non-musicians—or people who don’t feel super confident talking about music—become more effective music listeners and communicators.
The workshop is in three parts:
Part I: We break a piece of music down into its constituent elements and talk about how those elements function, both alone and together, we discuss music-communication pitfalls, and we, ultimately/hopefully, come up with some practical, jargon-free strategies for naming what we’re hearing when we listen to music.
Part II: We talk about the business of music (licensing, works-for-hire, how publishing works, communicating with composers, authoring agreements, etc.)
Part III: We listen to a range of music—from extra-familiar to deeply complex—and talk about it all using the concepts we discussed in Part I.
