Last offered Spring 2013

Cross Listed as MUS204
A continuation of Music 203, this course builds upon theoretical knowledge, performance and aural skills developed previously. Students will deal with more complex theoretical and performance issues, such as modal interchange and minor key harmony, use of symmetric scales, commonly-used reharmonizations of the blues and "I Got Rhythm" chord progressions, and Coltrane's "Three Tonic" harmonic system.
Class Format: the format is the same as for Music 203, with two weekly meetings, alternating between theory and performance sessions, and including a final recital
Requirements/Evaluation: two transcription projects and two original compositions, as well as a midterm and final exams, and participation in a recital at the end of the semester
