Tonal Harmony
MUSC 201
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

This course begins a more focused investigation of the materials and expressive possibilities of Western music from the common practice era (ca. 1700--1900) with forays into theories of world musics, experimental notation, and freer styles of composition. Topics include modes, the use of seventh chords, nonharmonic tones, tonicizations, modulation, and musical form. Particular emphasis will be placed on developing musicianship through weekly work on solfège, sight-singing, and dictation. Students learn how to harmonize melodies at the keyboard or on other instruments.
