Students enjoy performance and composition workshops, and play an active part in the life of their colleges – in chapels, orchestras, ensembles, bands and stage performances. Women have played a major role in music throughout history, as composers , songwriters , instrumental performers , singers , conductors , music scholars , music educators , music critics / music journalists and other musical professions. In many classrooms, today, teachers now have the tendency to play music while students are working.
You don’t have to hunt for a music store, nor step out of your house to get hold of a CD. Once accessed from the computer, you can now easily transfer your music files from your PC down to your MP3 player. The type of music varies, and students tell me that sometimes the music is not to their liking.
The first variant is when music is played live as long as you are online; in case of downloading you get music files copied to your hard disk, so they can be saved and played offline. It also meant that people could hear music from different parts of the country, or even different parts of the world, even if they could not afford to travel to these locations.
A different approach is to list the qualities music must have, such as, sound which has rhythm, melody, pitch, timbre, etc. Of course, following the success of compact discs and CD players is the mp3 and mp3 player. Beginning in the late 60s, some music was released on a cartridge called Stereo 8, or an 8-track tape.
Students dispossessed of these sensory stimulation that are provided specially by music have been equated by enlightening experts to youths who at some point of time in their lives experienced brain inactivity or damage. Potential to engage with the undergraduate course through a genuine spirit of enquiry and keenness to think critically about music.
