Tonal Harmony
MUSC 201
Spring 2023
Section: 01  

This course continues the work of Materials and Design, with a greater focus on the analysis of Western European music from the Common Practice period (1700-1900). Through activities such as model composition, listening assignments, and written exercises, students will deepen their understanding of harmony, melody, and form idiomatic to music of the late Baroque, Classical, and early Romantic periods. Although the repertoire for the course is drawn predominantly from Classical music as a specific cultural practice, other topics for elaboration will include jazz and popular music, musical theatre, and others at the suggestion of the students. In weekly labs, students will acquire greater agility with sight-singing, dictation, and keyboard skills, using solfège.
