Naomi Barker and Catherine Tackley have been working on a new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) for the Futurelearn platform, which provides free learning content from more than 50 Universities and Institutions, including the OU. ‘From Notation to Performance: Understanding Music Scores’ is a four-week course which explores what’s involved when musicians create a performance from musical notation and is intended for anyone with an interest in music (you do not have to be able to read music or be registered with the OU to take this course). It would be very good preparation for anyone returning to study music after a break, or for OU students looking to progress from level 1 to A224, Inside Music.
Registration is now open. For more details, see https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/musical-scores
