MUSI 298 - Musicianship III
(4 hours) Pre-requisites: MUSI 134 and 135 or 199 or or placement based on Musicianship placement exam.
This course is the third 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 III focuses on increasing fluency and complexity in the skills and topics covered in Musicianship I and II. Musicianship III also focuses on gaining fluency in the recognition, analysis, and composition of large-scale formal structures in the Classical tradition—namely, minuet, rondo, and sonata forms; the recognition, dictation, transcription, composition, performance, and analysis of chromatic, modulating, and sequential structures within the major/minor tonal system; the analysis and composition of 19th-century German art song; advanced uses of music notation and analysis software; and substantial writing about music.
