Music, Math, and Language|
This course offers students an opportunity to explore music theory, composition, improvisation, and practical musicianship skills in a seminar setting. Under the rubric of "music as language" students will learn about common chord structures, harmonic syntax, phrase structures, style, expression, and music-text relations in song. Under the rubric of "music and math," students will be introduced to new models for understanding tonality, rhythm, and meter. Some prior experience with music is recommended.
