MUS105: Music Theory through Performance and Composition

Course Info

Music 105 is the first of a two-semester course on introductory music theory of Western classical music. We will study various ways a diatonic scale is used to structure melodic and harmonic directions, and further, to govern phrases and musical forms. After an in-depth review of the rudiments-- scales, intervals, chords--we will proceed to examining counterpoint, harmonic function, and phrase structure. The course is designed to help you develop your understanding of music, analyze existing musical works, and compose your own.
