College Music Theory
This course offers an in-depth exploration of conventions of music notation, essential musical symbols, and basic analytical and compositional skills. Students will develop competency and fluency in intervals, scales, key signatures, rhythm and pitch notation, triads, seventh chords, melody harmonization, and non-harmonic tones. Studies will include an examination of elements of counterpoint and functional harmony. In this course students will observe and discern how tonal music works, learn how to articulate this understanding clearly and concisely, and then apply these concepts to their own musical ability.
