MUS 210 - Music Theory and Practice II

This course examines the conventions, fundamentals, and inner workings of tonal harmony as developed by composers of the Western art music tradition from the start of the seventeenth century to the twenty-first century through the lens of classical and contemporary music practices. Through written exercises and analysis of selected works, students will identify musical elements such as harmonic rhythm and progressions, cadences, nonchord tones, secondary dominant chords, modal mixture, form, and idiomatic languages of musical movements from history to modern and popular music today.
