Why take the time to Crack the Code of Classical Music?
Music is from the Lord. He created it, and He created us with the ability to both make and appreciate music.

Even rudimentary exposure increases one’s level of enjoyment and understanding. This course provides a close-up look at famous composers, their music, and their times, with special attention to character traits and Christian testimony (or lack thereof).
