MUSC 1001: Music Theory I: Tonic/Dominant Relationships (3)
Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0
An introductory study of various aspects of musical theory such as tonality, cadence, form, melody, rhythm, and harmony through the use of tonic and dominant triads. Concepts are presented in both aural and written formats. Class work consists of aural recognition (dictation), aural presentation (sight singing), written recognition (analysis) and written presentation (composition). Class assignments make regular use of technology. Students enrolled in this course develop critical thinking skills by making value judgments about music that is presented in class and by composing music of their own origin.
