Get Started

Students must be able to read words but not necessarily music. There will be handouts and worksheets available that will need to be printed and should be kept in a three-ring binder throughout the year. Handouts may require colored markers or pencils to complete. Music scores will be provided for the student’s future use.

Summary: The purpose of this course will be to provide students with a better understanding of the
liturgical worship cycles within the Orthodox Church and the music used for worship during the various services.

To provide students with a better understanding of our Orthodox faith through reading of scripture, familiarization with liturgical hymnology and by encouraging participation in the worship services through singing and development of a better understanding of the vocabulary used in the hymnology and within the Church. I will expose the students to
different translations and both Slavic and Byzantine tones in order for them to understand that there is both a variety of music within the Orthodox Church as well as various traditions.
