Fundamentals of Music begins this fall for grade 4 through Adult, and is free for youth and high school students registered in another class at the Conservatory.
This is a great class for adults who've always wanted to learn more about music, or for parents of music students want to speak their kids' language. There is a fee for adult students.
It's also the perfect supplement for Rock School, musical theater or beginning voice students.
The class will cover the basics of music reading, terminology and notation, and may even be eligible for academic credit. The Patel Conservatory is accredited by the same organization as Hillsborough County Public Schools.
Academic credit may be available for many classes taken at the Conservatory in dance, music and theater. Prior approval from your school is required.
