Introduction to Harmony (MTH2128.01)

Nicholas Brooke

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. Separately scheduled ear-training and sight-reading labs will help internalize these harmonic concepts. Students should be able to read music.
