I know not everyone is a musician, but I think we would be hard pressed to find many people who aren’t moved by music. Whether physically, emotionally or spiritually – music just does something to people. And that’s all that matters when teaching Music Appreciation. While it does help to have some knowledge of music, the little that is necessary can easily be learned in the first few days/weeks of lessons.
Teaching Music Appreciation doesn’t have to be a long, drawn out, detailed class. It can be a simple, fun overview of each era and how it relates to music today. Finding the similarities in the different eras and composers is like a big mystery and can really be so much fun.
