Free Courses

Recommended Posts

Hi, I did the jazz improv course at Coursera and it was very good (I got 93% ;) )

 

I noticed two other free courses that may be of  interest :

 

https://www.coursera.org/course/beethovensonatas

 

and in 2014

 

https://www.coursera.org/course/classicalcomp

 

These are free and there is no pressure once you have signed up to complete them, so you can browse the material etc..

I was thinking of doing this one, but I;m not sure if I'm already a bit too advanced for it. Any more details on the instructor/ syllabus?

The Jazz improv one was touted as a beginner course but was really for intermediate/advanced players and was very difficult in places.

 

I know nothing about the other courses but the way the Jazz one worked was interesting in that you get to mark and hear the work of the other students. There is also a forum so there may be a possibility to make future contacts and get your works heard by the other students. Should you teach composition there is also the possibility of learning from the format of the course which is modular. 

 

I would say its worth joining up for at least a browse :)
