OjaiU is a series of free courses designed to help audiences “listen smarter” and enable them to gain deeper insight into music. Far from being simply “program notes,” OjaiU is built around the ideas that animate the thinking behind a Festival like Ojai, featuring observations by artists, critics, and experts. Past guest instructors include Steven Schick, Mark Morris, Mark Swed, Jeremy Denk, and many more. Classes consist of video lectures, musical examples and demonstrations and listening assignments. Each one takes approximately half an hour to complete can be completed in any order. Use the links below to view past OjaiU courses from 2015 and 2013.
