For anyone wanting to master music's language, being able to read musical notation is a necessity. But this course, as Professor Greenberg notes, is a basic course, designed to introduce you to music's language in a way that is similar to the way you learned your own native language, by "discovering and exploring musical syntax through our ears-- by learning what the parts of musical speech sound like--rather than what they look like on paper." By sidestepping the necessity to read music, these lectures represent an extremely rare opportunity in musical education--an opportunity to experience a solid introduction to music theory's basics in a way that is not technically intimidating, yet provides a substantial grounding in the fundamentals--Publisher.

The lecturer in this video is quite annoying, and his jokes are corny. It was really hard to sit through the first lecture and absorb the information that he was trying to get across, without constantly being distracted by his stale humor and huge ego.

Prepare for off-color humor; We had had enough after the first two lectures
