Happy 2014! I hope you had a delightful holiday break and are now ready for an exciting semester.

This is a very special class, as during the course of the semester - we are going to spend a great deal of time discussing the concepts closest to my heart, and this class is unique in your curriculum as it is the only course where the primary emphasis is on the "Why" - not another class on the "What" or "How" of music education. As always, we shall probably make some changes and adjustments as we go, however, I look forward to a great semester, so now let's get down to business ...

For this Spring 2014 Semester, I have again re-vamped the course [trying to serve the varying needs of each of you taking the class] and made additional changes and improvements to the MUS314 web [originally created in 2010]. I think [hope] you shall find this format to be rather user-friendly. For this Spring 2014 Semester, we shall be using the Music 314 Web - Version 2.05.

Any errors or omissions are mine and mine alone.

Most Warmly,
Pete LaRue
