MUSI 012. Harmony, Counterpoint, and Form 2
This course will provide continued work on tonal harmony and counterpoint, largely as practiced in 18th- and 19th-century Europe. Topics include two-voice counterpoint, harmonization of soprano and bass lines in four-part textures, phrase structure, small and large scale forms, modulation and tonicization, and analysis using prolongational reductions. We will also study minuet form in detail, culminating in a final composition project.
All MUSI 012 students must register for an appropriate level of MUSI 040B for 0 or 0.5 credit. Keyboard skills lessons are required for all students in MUSI 012.
