Description

This course is closed to further registration.

Musicianship and Music Theory 1 will give students the tools to connect music theory concepts to the repertoire they love. This class will focus on tonic, predominant and dominant harmony, analysis of phrases and periods, and rhythms and melodies in both simple and compound meter, with the ultimate aim of understanding how a composer?s technique connects to the communicative and emotional power of music. We will explore how the understanding of theory can enhance a musician?s creativity and interpretive abilities.

Students must bring a 3-ring binder for class handouts, manuscript paper, and pencils. All other course materials will be provided by the instructor.

Prior knowledge of music theory is recommended. While we will review these topics at the first class, a good working understanding of key signatures and Roman numeral harmonic analysis is a general prerequisite. Please contact Harry Whitney at hwhitney@sfcm.edu to see if this class would be a good fit for you.
