MUS 069A - Music Fundamentals and Species Counterpoint

Semester Hours: 3
Fall
May be substituted for MUS 069  as the first required course for music majors in the music theory sequence, and should be taken concurrently with MUS 061  or 061A . It is intended for students who, on the basis of a placement examination, have demonstrated a need for intensive training in music fundamentals beyond that normally covered in MUS 69. It is organized in two parts: 1) an intensive and comprehensive survey of the fundamentals of music theory; 2) training in the writing and analysis of two-part species counterpoint in the manner of Fux. Emphasis is given to the development of a general understanding of fundamental principles of music theory and to the principles of voice leading and melodic structure that is most useful in the study of tonal harmony.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Corequisite: MUS 061  or 061A  or permission of the department. Enrollment limited to music majors or prospective music majors.
