OverviewThrough this module students receive a thorough grounding in the conventions of manuscript and printed music notation, in the principles of intervals and transposition. Students who successfully pass the course will be equipped 1) to write out and describe all musical intervals, scales and key signatures (in any clef and with any time signature), 2) to write out any piece of music in a different key, 3) to read and write parts for transposing instruments, 4) to write correctly one, two, and four notes against each semibreve of a cantus firmus.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
