Music Theory and Musicianship I

Music Theory and Musicianship I 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. These activities include composition, improvisation, performance, transcription, sight-reading, aural identification, music analysis, music technology applications, and writing. This course also builds keyboard and vocal skills: concepts will be drilled at the piano, vocally (using moveable Do solfege), and on students' primary instruments, if different. Concepts and activities will be situated within current discourses in music studies.
