Abstract

This learning module serves to guide the "non-musician" towards developing creative music composition and arrangement skills. The term "non-musician" as used here is a designation given to a student who has not studied music formally. In typical middle schools, high schools and colleges, there are several opportunities for student to perform in band, choir and orchestra programs. Often, course offerings for students without musical training are limited. This course allows students to explore music creation as well as a way to begin to critically assess and evaulate musical compositions based not on musical preference, but instead the presence and effectiveness of the various elements of music.
