Saturday April 18 to April 25, 2015 Once again, we invite you to UH Maui College to celebrate a week of music around Earth Day. All events and classes are free and open to the public. Please revisit for updated links.
Eighth Blackbird performs at Castle Theater on Feb 11, 2015 Just as we train our tastebuds to appreciate fine wine, we could use some guidance to listen to music — more fully and deeply than superficially. Don’t you want to know why you like or dislike a song? Why do some pieces touch your heart? What should you be listening for? How can you get more out of attending a live performance? These are questions that we address in WI-MUS106, MUS107, and piano classes, for all students are required to attend an approved concert and write a review. In effect, we are developing what’s called “music literacy.” The same way that we learned to read and write, we also need to develop our listening.
