Introduction to Music Theory and Musicianship

Introduction to Music Theory and Musicianship builds foundational skills for collegiate music study. Students discover broadly applicable musical concepts in the domains of pitch relationships, rhythm, timbre, and form, and build fluency with those concepts through skill-building activities, composition, improvisation, performance, transcription, aural identification, music analysis, music technology applications, and writing. Students will also discuss and reflect on current areas of discourse in music studies. This course is required for first-year School of Music students unless their placement exam indicates they should enter the Theory/Musicianship sequence with Theory I and Musicianship I.
