San Francisco Conservatory of Music • 50 Oak Street San FranciscoCA  94102 Organized by San Francisco Conservatory of Music

About this event


This course is closed to further registration.

Next Steps in Music Theory picks up where Introduction to Music Theory leaves off, and is perfect for a student continuing studies or perhaps wanting to brush up on work from years past. This class will begin with a look at figured harmony and the cadential 6-4; from there we will do a deep dive into tonicization and modulation, expanded musical forms, and rhythmic syncopation. Students will analyze select works from the classical music canon 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.

Prior knowledge of music theory is recommended. The ability to read music, and a good working understanding of key signatures and harmonic analysis will enhance a student’s enjoyment of this course. Please contact Harry Whitney at hwhitney@sfcm.edu to see if this class would be a good fit for you.
