Music is considered one of the few universal languages, and as such, it demands a specific notational and grammatical system. Music Fundamentals is designed to create a strong and resourceful foundation for students whose fundamental knowledge of music as an art form requires further expansion and development. Any student interested in solidifying his or her knowledge of the essential vocabulary of music is highly encouraged to take Music Fundamentals. As musicians, it is your obligation to be fully versed in the language of your discipline. Without this "musical language" your participation in the musical environment can be severely restricted. This is not to say you cannot achieve a certain level of success, but to move freely and confidently in the musical landscape and to adapt to alternative functions you must be as fluent as possible in the language. Music Fundamentals primarily addresses the notational components of music in Western tradition as well as some of music's basic but most essential facets.
