Theory and Analysis|
Spring 2013 not offered
This course extends and continues the theory taught in MUSC 201. It begins with reviewing diatonic harmony and voice leading, and then goes on to introduce chromaticism on the topics of secondary dominants, secondary leading-tone chord, modal mixture, and augmented sixth chords. In addition, MUSC 202 also discusses the issue of the relationships between musical form and phrase structure. The discussion covers a wide range of forms, including simple/composite part-forms, rondo, variation, and sonata forms. In the end of this course, the student will understand how a composer masterfully synthesizes various musical elements to articulate the formal design of his/her composition. Similar to MUSC 103 & 201, this learning sequence in music theory is closely associated with that of aural, oral, and basic keyboard skills. Based on this curriculum, the student can learn musical structure through multiple perspectives of theory, hearing, singing, and performing.
