General Music for 7th Grade is a Music History Course that begins with study in the Middle Ages, and ends with study of the Classical/Romantic Period. We explore the changes and innovations that occurred in music through the work of the great composers that led us to the popular, classical and traditional styles of music that we enjoy today. Emphasis is placed on listening and analyzing the content of the music as we review the elements of music. The Guitar will be used to enhance our experience as we learn about chord structure, accompaniment in music texture, and melody. Grades are given for four written tests and for performance on guitar.
