This course covers the basic concepts and skills of Western music theory and analysis. Topics include acoustics; intervals and ratios; music terminology; melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic structures; standard musical forms; and an introduction to music notation in both treble and bass clefs. The course focuses on common practice tonality, but also explores other possibilities for organizing musical sound. This seminar+ course involves additional activities such as concerts and museum visits outside of regular classtime. This course is one of the two required courses for Contemporary Music majors/minors and a prerequisite for some other music courses such as LMUS 2003: Composition and Analysis.
