Music Toolkit: Theory for Singers and Performing Musicians (MFN2214.02)

Kitty Brazelton

This course is designed to further the understanding and identification of the symbols of music and to integrate them into practical application.  Scales, intervals and rythmic notation will be reviewed and be used to sing simple pieces of music.  We will deal with melody and harmony through reading single melodic lines, four part Bach Chorales and other music in most of the classes. Repetition of the process will enforce the learning process.  The use of the language of music will be encouraged by homework assignments of melodic writing, which will then be sight-read by the class. The aim of the class is to reinforce fundamentals learned in groundworks and to expand on the use of the language of music through singing.
