An icebreaker activity for the first day of class. Instructor introduces the idea of the “Three Bs” in classical music, before introducing the “Three Bs” of current popular music (this instructor chose Beyonce, Bad Bunny, and BTS). Students choose their favorite “B” and pair up with others who made the same choice. Other grouping prompts can easily be substituted here, like favorite genre of music. Students then take turns interviewing each other, asking two questions and summarizing their partner’s answers in writing. At the end, groups can share their answers with the clas and the instructor can type them out on the Powerpoint.

This course examines musical works, composers, and aesthetics from antiquity to the present.

As a result of our work, you will develop the critical skills needed to understand the socio-historical events that inspire musical compositions and styles.

The Music and… Playlist is a semester-long scaffolded writing assignment that I designed to replace a midterm and final exam. (Scaffolding refers to breaking a larger writing assignment into step-by-step, cumulative stages.) This assignment requires students to: choose a social topic (e.g. coming of age, feminism, holidays); write a topic proposal describing how their topic relates to music; choose six pieces of music from different genres; write short playlist entries that discuss the social and musical characteristics of each piece; and create a slide presentation summary. The document below includes handouts for each stage of the assignment.

In-class activity for small groups of 3-4 students; intended to review the musical characteristics associated with four genres of sacred music: plainchant; organum; Renaissance mass; chorale.

The format of this activity can be easily repurposed to fit other musical genres, periods, or styles.

" Offered in the spring and fall terms, Introduction to Stagecraft is a hands-on course that gets students working with the tools and techniques of theatrical production in a practical way. It is not a design course but one devoted to artisanship. Among the many remarkable final projects that have been proposed and presented at the end of the course have been a Renaissance hourglass blown in the MIT glass shop and set into a frame turned on our set shop lathe; a four harness loom built by a student who then wove cloth on it; a number of chain mail tunics and coifs; a wide variety of costume and furniture pieces and electrified period lighting fixtures."

As per our course theme, there's more to the stage picture than meets the eye (& ear). Before an actor even enters a rehearsal studio or first steps onto the stage, months and often years of creative work and research will have gone into that play and production. In this course we will explore and try our hand at some of that pre-production creativity, as well as improvising, adapting, performing and writing short scenes and monologues that will be created and presented in small groups as part of your Final Project.
