MUS 22 Harmony and Rhythm

For students already skilled in harmony and staff notation. We will study concepts and practices relevant to arranging in various styles and writing effectively for specific instruments and ensembles. Idioms include piano, strings, vocal groups, acoustic guitar. Close attention is given to the interplay of harmony and rhythm on a micro level and to macro effects of textural contrast in creating musical form. Readings connect students with musicians past and present who have listened intently to the structure and syntax of chords. Incorporates work on musicianship.




Students who have not taken MUS 20 should contact the instructor prior to the first day of class.

It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
