How Music Works at the Somers Library
Saturday, April 6 & Saturday April 13, 1:00 - 2:30 pm

How Music Works is a two-part discussion for music fans and beginning musicians who wish to understand the components of music and how these components fit together. Discussed will be: basics of chords and chord progressions, melody and harmony and the evolution of music. This is a flexible curriculum, and class interests and experience will play a part in dictating our direction. This program is designed for teens and adults. You do not need a knowledge of music to attend this class - only a desire to learn! Registration is required; please register on our online calendar here or call 914-232-5717.

Barry Wiesenfeld is a freelance musician and is on the faculty of SUNY and Ramapo College. He has accompanied Grammy-winning artists, performed on 3 continents and has played on numerous recordings, radio and TV. In addition to the "How Music Works" series, Barry offers a lecture entitled "The Beatles - 50 Years Later" which explores the reasons for their continued popularity, as well as programs on other aspects of music: history, theory and more.
