So the Anglo-Saxon Performance class didn't get picked up for University. Can't say I blame them too badly; there were a passle of other neat performing arts classes proposed to fill out that track, at a variety of levels.
Now, just wait for the day when we have enough PA&S resources/interest that we can fill two tracks, one with introductory material and one with obscure stuff! Bwahaha!
So the A-S Performance project is tabled for the moment. Although honestly, it's really just a matter of finding my citations at this point. Unless, you know, I totally switch gears and do make it "Lyre and Poetry 201." I don't know... I kind of like pointing out the differences between a gleoman and a scop, and how there's room for both kinds of performer.
The Research class moves forward, now with more resources for non-music people!
Plus for music theory:
Early Music FAQ
Don't know any especially good introductions to basic music theory on the Web; you can Google for it but I don't know which websites will appeal to which learners. My hunch is that a learn-by-ear performer will have a better time of it if they partner or team with a real live person to introduce them to the concepts, anyway.
I'm paring the Goal-Setting and Literature Search portions of the class way down to focus more on Aspects of Performance. I will talk to a few major resources in the field, I think, but want to mostly focus on breaking down an oral performance into components you can document. I need to revisit my organization for that section because I'm wandering when I hit it; right now, it's a big long list of stuff which isn't as navigable as something with a narrative to link it all together.
