The ability to analyze and break things up into its constituent parts is a valuable skill in many areas, including music performance and teaching. Analysis provides a basis for change management, developmental growth, and personal interpretation, all essential parts of learning music. Particularly with the something as complex as the art of music, the ability to separate its different aspects is extremely helpful for both teachers and students. Participants will begin to look at music through various lenses and explore different ways of musical development.
