A7230: Discovering Music in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
Where does music come from, anyways? As we use nothing else but our bodies and household items to make music of our own, we will discover what makes music work, learn to hear music in our heads and feel rhythm in our bodies, and hopefully also pick up some math, language, acappella, beatboxing, box beating and tubes along the way. Prepare to get hands-on and stay hydrated.

A6768: How Do Music Tell Stories? in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
Tension and resolution. This is the key to storytelling through movies, games, and especially music. We will analyze examples from pop music, movie soundtracks and video game BGMs and find out how musicians use one powerful tool - chords - to build different progressions and tell different stories.
