Instructor notes: This course is a hybrid course, and meets once a week face to face, plus there is an online component delivered through a non-MiraCosta Moodle server specific to the Music Department. If you haven't taken a music course in 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. THIS IS A LATE-START COURSE - the course will probably open for you to log in during the second week of classes, and the course officially starts the third week of class. You will need to purchase a serial number for the course from the Oceanside bookstore to access assignments and quizzes for the online portion of the course. There is also a requirement for you to attend two concerts during the semester. Details about concert report requirements will be given in the syllabus.
