MUSI 103 - Basic Music and Songwriting (TH)
Introduces students to the fundamental elements of music theory through performance, songwriting, and analysis. While focusing primarily on Western art music (“classical music”), popular song, and jazz, these broad categories represent the roots of many specific genres. Consequently, the practical techniques learned can be applied to many styles. In addition to written and aural assessments, students will perform keyboard hearings and compose several short pieces, culminating in the composition of an original song. (TH)
