Theory and Analysis|
MUSC202 continues the investigation of Common Practice harmony and voice leading begun in MUSC 201 and extends it to standard chromatic harmonies (including augmented sixth chords, and the Neapolitan), exploring these topics through model composition and analysis. The course also covers the analysis of standard tonal forms, including sonata form. Skills labs continue to develop sight singing, dictation, and keyboard skills.
