MUSI 040C. Elements of Musicianship III
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 third semester, Music 40C, introduces atonal melodies using seconds, thirds, fourths, and fifths and continues to explore closely related modulation and chromatic tonicization; sequences; advanced triplets and irregular meters; advanced transposition; the "church" modes; the whole tone scale; and the octatonic scale.
