MUSC 250 Theory and Practice of Music II

This course deepens students' exposure to techniques for analysis and composition in the style of eighteenth-nineteenth century common practice. We will study imitative genres and sectional forms (ternary, sonata, rondo), exploring chromatic extensions of diatonic practice. Students will engage in analytic and compositional projects in consultation with Music History faculty. Includes continued training in tonal sight singing, listening, and keyboard skills: introduction to chromaticism, related key modulations, modes, seventh chords; continued study of chord progressions and rhythmic studies.
