I am not a musician, but I can play a mediocre version of “Mary Had a Little Lamb” on the piano. And I am a lover of all kinds of music (the range of genres on my ipod would probably shock you). If I ever did decide to pick up a guitar, I might ask my teacher to start with a catchy three-chord tune called “Wild Thing” by The Troggs. (Today marks the 47th anniversary of “Wild Thing” going to number one on the charts!)
In any case, I love to learn about music.
If, like me, you’re not a musician, but have an appreciation for music that you’d like to indulge, check out this fall course. ——->
The course is designed to help you improve your musical experience by giving you an understanding of what goes into the creation of a piece, including historical and social contexts.
MUSC1101 is offered by Northland Community and Technical College for non-music majors and would be a fun elective to fill a Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal Area 6 requirement.

And if you prefer a brush stroke to a musical note, we have some art courses on the fall schedule too! Find available courses in a multitude of subject areas offered this fall. Contact an online advisor if you have any questions.
