MUS 10 - Music Appreciation ONLINE

Welcome to Music Appreciation ONLINE !

In a very short time, you will have the opportunity to learn about the rudiments of music as well as a bit of history of Western European music. You will study music of various eras and cultures, learn the differences between textures in music and begin to trace the development of today's music to its origins in Europe, Africa, and Asia. With practice, you will be able to speak about music in terms more complex than "I like that" or "That's boring." As a result of the readings, assignments, and music you will study, you may begin to discover WHY you like or dislike a certain music and be able to convey that in words.

 

To begin, you need the following:

The ACCESS CODE to the courseware website OnMusic Appreciation, 3rd ed. Published by Connect For Education, Inc., distributed by McGraw Hill. This code is available online for $109.95. It's not cheap, but it is good, and the software was just revised to improve your experience. You will need a credit card to purchase the courseware access code. You can begin working online in the class within 5 minutes of purchasing the code. This is the least expensive and quickest manner to obtain the Access Code.

PLEASE DO NOT BUY A USED ACCESS CODE OR CD-ROM; YOU WILL WASTE YOUR MONEY AND YOUR TIME.

The Access Code is good for one-time use ONLY and it is non-transferrable; ONCE IT IS USED, IT IS INVALID. CLICK HERE to purchase the OnMusic Appreciation access code.

Internet access. The faster the better, especially for the interactive listening player (Real Player or Shockwave) which you may need to download free to use with every listening example.

 

Once you have purchased the OnMusic Appreciation access code, follow these directions to register online with Connect4Education. Follow these instructions precisely and you will quickly be ready to begin. YOU MUST BE ENROLLED BY THE ADD DEADLINE in order to avoid being dropped as a no-show.

If you have a problem BEFORE you are able to log in, contact me at lou.delarosa@westvalley.edu. After you register your access code and are in the system, you may contact me from within the website.

IF YOU ARE WAITLISTED, I WILL GLADLY ADD YOU, I will consider other ADD requests I receive before the ADD/DROP deadline, but don't wait too long! Remember, we don't have access to ADD codes until the day before class begins, so just email me and be patient.
