MU 241 - Materials and Structures I


Credits: 4
Following a brief review of the rudiments of pitch, rhythm, and meter, students will study the principles of species counterpoint and then proceed to write and analyze diatonic tonal harmony, with reference to musical literature, style, form, and compositional process. Diatonic tonal syntax is the foundation of Western art music from the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries, as well as some jazz and popular musics up to the present time. Examples will be chosen from a wide range of historical periods, musical styles, and traditions.
Prerequisites: diagnostic exam or  .
Note(s): (Fulfills humanities requirement; fulfills humanistic inquiry.)
