A nuts‐and‐bolts overview of tonal harmony, from scales and chords to voice leading. At first we’ll focus on the harmonic practices of Classical and Baroque music, later broadening our focus to a variety of pop, jazz, and contemporary music. Emphasis will be placed on creative work, and students will be asked to compose and perform pieces in a variety of harmonic styles. Ear‐training will help internalize these harmonic concepts. Students must be able to read music.
