Music in the Mood of the Fifth Course

INSTRUCTOR: Dan Prindle
    This course begins by giving parents and teachers a solid foundation in the basic elements of western music theory that are necessary prerequisites to understanding music in the mood of the fifth.  These prerequisites include the fundamentals of music theory (basics of pitch and rhythm) and an introduction to diatonic and pentatonic music.  The course then proceeds to define the mood of the fifth and describe its elements, as well as give a variety of examples.  This course offers the necessary knowledge for parents and teachers to fully understand this often vaguely defined concept.
