Instructor notes: This course is a hybrid course, which is taught partially face to face with me on Thursday mornings, and partially online through a non-MiraCosta Moodle server specific to the Music Department. If you haven't taken a music course in Coastline Moodle before, you will need to create a new account to access this course. All the information you will need can be found at if you want to get started before the semester officially begins. Get your textbook as soon as possible! The textbooks come with a serial number that unlocks the online quizzes. If you don't plan on purchasing a textbook, you may consider dropping the course. There is also a requirement for you to attend two concerts during the semester. You may choose your own concerts. More details about concert report requirements will be given in the syllabus, which will be available at It is strongly recommended that you are also enrolled in MUS 144 (Applied Music) for private lessons, and take either MUS 121 or 129 (Piano), as well as enroll in an ensemble.
