S279: Chemistry at Hogwarts in Splash 2014 (Apr. 06, 2014)
"There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class. As such, I don't expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion-making. However, for those select few... Who possess, the predisposition... I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death." -- Severus Snape


A72: Musical Analysis in Splash 2011 (Apr. 02, 2011)
Music has power. The beat, tone, rhythm, and ideas conveyed in a song have the ability to make someone cry, laugh, dance, get pumped up, or sleepy. This class introduces several skills necessary to increase one's ability to analyze the meaning of different types of popular songs, and why they are so powerful.
