MUSI 040B. Elements of Musicianship II
The Elements of Musicianship courses explore music making from a variety of perspectives and across many styles and genres of (mostly) Western music. Among the skills developed are: sight-singing melodies and arpeggiated harmonic progressions; singing and playing the piano simultaneously; part singing in choral works; taking musical dictation; transcription of recorded music; basic conducting; beginning keyboard harmony; and transposition.
The second semester, Music 40B, explores the use of triads in inversion; tonicizations of closely related key areas; chromatic non-harmonic tones; the dominant seventh chord; syncopation and cross-rhythm; and complex subdivision.
Required for all MUSI 012 students, with or without 0.5 credit. The instructor will place students at appropriate levels.
