Subject Area: Music

This core course extends the student’s knowledge of the materials, structures, and processes of tonal music beyond the foundational level via the study and application of harmonic and melodic practices in post-1850 art music composition, as well as other styles including popular music and jazz. Students will develop technical knowledge and skill in the analysis and application of appropriate melodic and harmonic elaboration, voice-leading, and musical form. Exercises in advanced compositional craft provide the student with the opportunity to demonstrate their initiative and creativity within selected styles of music. The course develops core skills in musicianship and the ability to apply these in other areas of musical practice and research.
