The Curtis Institute of Music was the first classical music conservatory to partner with Coursera to create and distribute a massive open online course (MOOC). Since launching its first class in Fall 2013, Curtis has inspired students, from teens to lifelong learners, to form a global community engaging with classical music.
A repeat session of From the Repertoire is now open and will continue through November 2014, with lectures and forums available even longer. Sign up now and learn at your convenience.
