General Music Theory

Musical Studies 130

Usual Description

This course is for students who are majoring in something other than music. The central focus is on Western classical and vernacular traditions, although much of the approach applies to other traditions as well. We will examine the objective musical materials (scales, chords, rhythms, and so forth) as well as some of the perceptual and conceptual processes and cultural contexts that make music meaningful. students will thus learn many of the basics that music majors learn, along with some important features of human cognition that connect music with the other arts and with experience generally. Please contact the instructor for additional information
