2021 DSM Music Language Online Course

Everything you need in order to speak the language of music fluently!

The Music Language Online Course – Analysis Module covers a variety of concepts. You do this step-by-step with Deb – unpacking the fundamentals, applying the skills and learning strategies for further practice. Everything moves in sequence, little by little, to make sure you really KNOW all about Analysis. 

Concepts covered include:

  • Expressive Outcomes in Performance; build your word lists and hone your skills in settling on character, feel, atmosphere or mood of the piece of music.
  • Expressive Elements in Performance; join Deb for a deep dive into all the stuff that impacts whether the music conveys aggression, humour or melancholy. This will include: tempo, tone colour, dynamics, articulation, texture (suss out the difference between balance and blend!), phrasing, ornamentation/embellishment and improvisation. 

What is MLOCA?

You can do this Online Course in your own time. Work through the material at a pace that suits you, watch and re-watch the Teaching Videos as much as you need and use the Concept Handbook to steadily build your understanding. Connect with other Online Course participants to support one another, ask questions and progress together. 

Even though you’ll have the freedom to decide when you unlock the mysteries of analysis, Deb won’t leave you on your own. You’ll hear from her regularly – checking in on your progress and keeping you on track. Don’t forget, too – you can always reach her via email if you’re stuck.

Who is MLOCA for?
