Music Appreciation Course Syllabus   Instructor: Mr. O. Wright Room Location: Band Room Contact Information: Oscar.Wright@darlington.k12.sc.us Phone: (843) 326-7556 (School)   Course Description In this class, you will be taught musical knowledge within the world of music. Within this class, you will be taught musical theory, music history, and appreciation of musical performances.  Our goal is to grow as individuals as well as a group and work together to improve our skills throughout the year. Materials Needed: Macbooks (fully charged) 3 ring binder (preferably black) or something to write in Paper A Pencil A Positive Attitude!   Instructional Philosophy This is an informational performance-based class. The class is learning the craft of music and perfecting that craft. No learning can happen unless you put in the proper work to have an effective result. The class is all motivational and positive; the belief of “I CAN’T” is a belief that won’t be tolerated within the class. The class will be taught using various instructional method books that will be provided to you at little or no cost.   Power Standards and Course Goals From SC College-and Career-Ready Standards for General Music Anchor Standard V: I can perform using musical notation Anchor Standard VI: I can analyze music.
