MUSI 299 - Musicianship IV


(4 hours) Pre-requisites: MUSI 231 and 232 or 298 or placement based on Musicianship placement exam. This course is the last of a four-part sequence devoted to the development of foundational musicianship skills. The goal of the Musicianship course sequence is for each student to be able to think critically and in detail about Western musical structures, and to communicate clearly and persuasively about them. This goal necessitates fluency or competence in musical notation, analysis, model composition, performance, dictation and transcription, and writing about music.
Musicianship IV focuses on gaining fluency in the recognition, dictation, transcription, performance, and analysis of heavily chromatic, atonal, dodecaphonic, serial, and other complex structures of Western art and avant-garde music of the late 19th and early 20th centuries; understanding the aesthetic principles behind composition and performance practices of the 20th century; the relationship of music to other art forms in the 20th century; advanced analytical writing about music; and an introduction to computational analysis.
