Theory III: Form and Analysis

This course incorporates the concepts from Music Theory I and II. In addition, through analysis from the macro to the micro large-scale form, orchestration, motive identification and tracking, detailed harmonic progression (sonorities, functions, and modulation types) are studied. Variation techniques, binary and ternary forms, sonata forms, and contrapuntal forms are included in the study of such composers as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and Mahler. Use of music notation software. A concurrent laboratory experience in ear training and sight-singing including melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic dictation is required. See Ear Training III.
