Experience the Arts

Music 90


Experience the Arts (Music) course. Music 90 is designed to complement and enhance the Music Theory, Appreciation and Performance classes in which you are concurrently enrolled. If you have not already signed up for a Music Theory, Appreciation or Performance class, please do so immediately.


Experience the Arts (ETA) is a .5 unit class. It is designed to be taken two times for credit in each department of the Creative Arts Division. In other words, you may take ETA within the Music Department only twice, but you may take up to 1 unit each of ETA Art, Photography and Drama, to a total of 3 units. ETA is not available for a letter grade, it is credit/no credit only.

Requirements for Experience the Arts (Music) 

     1. Attend at least 7 musical concerts.  The concerts
         may be in any geographical location, and in
         any musical genre such as classical, jazz, blues, rock, hip hop, fusion, world music, etc.

     2. For each concert you attend you must turn in a concert report
         form. A supply of forms is included in this packet. The concert
         report form asks you to make analytical observations about the
         music you are hearing. Please remember to fill out your
         identification information and the information about the concert
         you are attending. Fill out the form on the basis of only one
         movement or song which you choose, not the entire concert, and
         please identify this movement or song on the report form. In
         several places the form will ask you to write a narrative
         description of how you responded to the specific musical
         element named. Please try to describe exactly how this specific
         element was used in the music, and the personal emotional
         effect it had on you, if any.
     3. Attach the concert program to your concert report, and turn it in
         to the MPC Art Gallery.
