Understanding Musical Scores

Course Level 1: Introductory

Estimated Study Time: 12-15 hours

Would you like to know more about what musicians do in rehearsals and performances? Would you like to learn different techniques for listening to and understanding music? This course provides a general introduction to how to understand a musical score, and insights into what professional musicians do with the notation that these contain. You’ll learn how to connect the notation you see with the music you hear, from short familiar melodies to a full orchestral score.

Focusing on works by Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven and Mahler, we’ll introduce you to a pianist, a small chamber group and a conductor who will explain how they create memorable performances from the notes on the page.
