Welcome to QHST's 11th grade music class. I am very excited to be joining you at this time in your high school career. I have high hopes and aspirations for each of you as we begin to develop your music listening, songwriting and production skills this year. In this class, we will learn the art of appreciating various types of music and critically listen for Texture, Timbre, Rhythm, Melody, Harmony and Lyrical Analysis. We will explore various genres of music and recreate music in different types of themes and settings to begin to hone your composition skills. Let us work hard together this year, be successful and take chances.
