MULT 102 - Accelerated Music Theory for Non-Majors


3 Credit(s)

Gen Ed: AE credit.
Instruction designed for non-music majors with some prior knowledge of music theory who wish to improve their fluency in the technical language of tonal music. Topics will include (but are not limited to) acoustics, clef reading, intervals, scales, modes, keys and key signatures, texture, simple forms, harmonic progression and analysis. Aural skills, an aural demonstration of theoretical principles and basic keyboarding skills, will enrich and expand the written study. In addition to providing terms and categories, music theory provides a framework for understanding how music is put together and why music sounds the way it does. Permission of instructor required. Non-music majors only. Fall and Spring.
