(The 2nd Music Workshop will have the same syllabus, only with different dates/schedules.)

     The focus of this workshop is to form music groups or bands that will create—by way of jam sessions—unique compositional musical transformations of the poems/paintings named on this web-site.  The musical compositions of this workshop will be for the purpose of gathering ideas, skills, & motivation to create the actual final transformation that each student must present for the course in early May. In the process, important elements of music will be explored.  There is a required 3-5 page research paper.  For this workshop you will need to spend at least 30 minutes outside of class—usually creating and rehearsing with your music group/band—for each day the class meets.

 If more than 5% of the students in the class are absent or late (starting usually at 11:05AM,) there will be a short quiz over the readings/content of the workshop.  If you miss a quiz due to absence or because you are late, it cannot be made up and will count against your grade.
