Music Theory Made Fun with Hazel Ketchum
Ever want to start from the beginning? Ever want to understand what all this music theory is about? This class is for musicians who really
want to know what is going on with all those chords and scales. Hazel will demystify music theory in this class for all ages and levels.
The Art of Jamming with Hazel Ketchum

tunes, songs or chords this class is for you. Even while we social distance we can get ready for festivals and jams next year!
World Music Club with Owen Grooms
All across the world, there are many beautiful and vibrant musical traditions, many of which are unknown to most of us in the world. In the
time-honored format of a book club, we will all dive into one album from a different area of the world each week, and then discuss it together
online in a Zoom meeting. Some places we may visit while actively listening to the albums we discuss include: Cape Verde, Indonesia, Brazil,
India, and Mali.
How Culture Influences Music with Norm Malenke
During this eight-week interactive Zoom course, the cultural influence on certain composers and pieces/songs within the classical and folk
music genres will be examined. Several weeks will also be devoted to the study of how folk music has become entrenched within classical music.
The backgrounds of selected composers/song writers will be examined and several of their works will be listened to and discussed in depth.
