(musTh212) Assignment 1 (modified): WordPress Account and Reading

Due Friday, 1/11/08.

Both sections:

Go to wordpress.com, the host of this blog, and create an account for yourself. Once you’ve created an account for yourself, let me know by posting a comment to this assignment.

If you already have a wordpress account, simply post a comment to the assignment.

One of the big advantages of using a blog to manage course materials is that discussion capabilities are built in. If you respond to lecture notes and/or assignment posts with your questions as they come up (rather than saving it for the next class and struggling on your homework), I or other class members can provide you with help in a convenient time frame. And the only way you can post a comment to my blog is to have a wordpress account. (This cuts down on spam.)

WordPress.com has a big button in the upper right that lets you create an account or blog. You don’t need to create a blog to have an account, creating an account is free, and I never get unwanted email from wordpress. (In other words, there is no downside.) If you have problems creating an account, email me, or see me during the day.

Reading and Listening

Due Wednesday, 1/9/08

Read Ch. 39 of the Gauldin. Be prepared to discuss the chapter and the music.

Listen to the Prelude from Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde several times with the score. (piano reduction in Burkhart, pp. 344 – 350)

    Round 4! So, after three semesters’ worth of theory, this class’ll be pretty easy now, right? … Right!?

    So you are on to your 3rd semester of dealing with me….bwahahaha. Dont you wish I would just get done and graduate? Yeah, me too… too bad you aren’t teaching like the next theory class. Then we could go on to semester 4. Well her is my post with my account that is about a year old now.

  6. I don’t care what you say. I’m going to make sure you’re my theory teacher until I graduate. Looking forward to another sarcasm-filled learning experience.

    I can’t believe I wasn’t the first person to get around to doing this…apparently this semester’s class is actually going to be responsible.

    I fell asleep on the couch after a hard day at work. But nightmares about my sight singing exercises made him toss and turn, eventually causing him to roll off of the couch. He stood up and announced:

    Mi Fa La Fa Sol Fa.
