This course is designed with these ideas in mind. With careful study and practice, you’ll begin to make mathematical connections between the different concepts. These connections will help you see math in ways you never have before. Students in the live class will move through the course with the school calendar. My Pace students may move faster or slower.

Learning Coach: Ame Burton

Prerequisites: None


This course introduces musicians through the centuries some of whom are determined, patriotic, handicapped, passionate, and brilliant. You will learn who is the “King of the Orchestra.” (Hint: He/she plays a percussion instrument.) You will study about “America’s choir” and hear them sing songs from the musical drama, Fiddler on the Roof—a work highlighted in this course. When a nation is in crisis and her citizens don’t know exactly where to turn or what to say, it seems composers are compelled to break the silence with music (with or without lyrics) that brings people together. You will learn about some of these times; and will end the course by assimilating songs yourself that may come back to you at inspired times when words won’t do and “it is impossible to be silent.”
