Teacher: Kristy Barbacane

What you'll learn in this music class:

Music and sound are powerful tools of communication and expression. Music has long been used to express emotions, such as joy or sorrow, as well as reflections of unrequited love or worship of a deity.

Music can also serve as a weapon or form of torture. For example, sound played at loud decibels may instigate physical pain and cause irrecoverable damage to the mechanisms of the ear. Constant noise or the repetitive playing of a song over extended periods of time can cause psychological torture by disorienting and exhausting the listener.

This class will investigate the ways music has been used as a weapon as well as the uniqueness of sound as both inescapable, as the listener cannot easily close their ears, and covert, a perceived type of "no-touch torture" that leaves behind little to no traceable mark on the outward appearance of the physical body.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
