for you. Let's continue with thediscussion of the elements of music. We're going to be working todaywith harmony. So far we've had two sessionsspecifically on rhythm, two sessions specifically onmelody, and today we come to harmony. Harmony is one of the twothings that really distinguishes

the music of WesterncivilizationWestern classical music, Western pop music. What are the two thingsé Well, as mentioned before,this dependence upon heavy usage of written musicalnotation not so much in the pop musicbut certainly in the classical musicwriting it all down, being able to manipulate it inthat fashion,

so that's one thing thatdistinguishes Western classical music. Another aspect that we'retalking about today is harmony. Stop and think about it. Think about the melodies ofChina and Japan, virtually everyand Islamiccountries virtually every musicalcivilization around the world has more sophisticated melodiesthan we do in the West.

Maybe it's because we're sodependent on the keyboard here. So that's important to keep inmind. Then let's talk about rhythmfor a moment.
