Music Theory & Literacy II

A sequential continuation of Music Theory I, the emphasis will be placed on a study of voice leading; harmonic analysis; the harmonization of bass lines and soprano melodies, employing a variety of diatonic triads, seventh chords and non-chord tones; and recognition and labeling of periodic phrase structures, with an emphasis on the harmonic style of music from the 18th and early 19th centuries.

Prerequisite is Theory I.
