Music is one of the deeply beloved and essential part of our lives—we can’t live without it. Have you ever wanted to know how and where the miracle of music began? HOW did those venerable composers know how to create the deliciously moving sounds that can bring us to tears, to rapture and to “goose bumps?” Join pianist and musical scholar Jacquelyne Silver as she takes you on a lively and epic journey through 40,000 years of music, from pre-historic times to today! You will open your ears and hear music like you never have before—this course just may change your life!
