Catch the “Music Bug”

Catch the “Music Bug” this Summer!

by Dr. Jacob Roseman

Summer is a great time to reflect and enjoy pastimes, especially music. I have been teaching music appreciation courses for the last seven years at the University of Wisconsin-Marathon, and have developed a following, which I would like to extend to the Wausau Conservatory of Music this summer.

As a start, I have proposed two music classes entitled, “Summer’s Greatest Classical Hits” and “Do You Hear What I Hear: A Guide to Understanding Classical Music.” These classes will take place June through July, on Monday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

These mini-courses, a total of three sessions per topic, are a great and fun opportunity to further your listening skills and enjoy some wonderful classical music, as well as meeting others that you may not have a chance to meet in settings such as these.

Most of the classes are built around music videos, which I play clips of in class and then thoroughly discuss. My objective in teaching these courses is to not only introduce classics and further enhance one’s listening, but to also encourage one to attend more concerts due to your renewed appreciation of music – all in all, I want to make classical music contagious to you!

Amidst your busy schedule, I hope you strongly take time to consider taking one, or both, of these short courses to provide some music for your soul and realize what you have potentially missed out on all along. Who knows, you might even become addicted and want to continue further classes in the fall and/or spring. Regardless, I hope to meet you this summer and share my love and passion for music with you!

Two Classes taught by Dr. Jacob Roseman,  Faculty Artist at the Conservatory

Summer’s Great Classical Hits  Sign Up

Summer and music are synonymous, especially music which is more leisurely or light-hearted in nature. Come and join us to explore some of the greatest, and sometimes overlooked, classics which have some sort of connotation with summer. We will explore classics encompassing compositions of Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky, Gershwin, De Falla, Rodrigo, and Mendelssohn. And the best part, we are indoors, so no bugs or bug spray needed!

(Mondays, 6/11, 6/18, 6/25, 6:30-8:00 p.m.)  Cost $49

“Do You Hear What I Hear?: A Guide to Understanding Classical Music   Sign Up

Classical music many times can come across as intimidating or misunderstood, but it does not to be so – it really is beautiful and quite simple music to listen to. Join us to develop listening tools to further enjoy classical music and cultivate a deeper understanding of it – this will not only enhance your listening experience, but will take it to a whole other level. Who knows, you might even become a “classical” music buff by the end of the class!

(Mondays, 7/9, 7/16, 7/23, 6:30-8:00 p.m.)  Cost $49
