Music Theory II
The Second course in the Music Theory/History program concentrates on the development of diatonic melody and harmony in the common practice period using practical exercises. Students participate in sight singing and ear training exercises, dictation exercises, composition exercises, and keyboard realization of theoretical concepts. Pivotal works within the history of western music that highlight the material being covered are analyzed and discussed. Students make use of online sources and class discussions in order to compare and contrast these musical parameters and works with those in other cultures throughout the world.
