The course is a continuation of Music 112 and concentrates on extensions of tonality by means of changing tonal centers and the use of altered chords.
Attendance is required. Please schedule your other classes so you
will be able to be in the room at the beginning of the class and not
leave it before the end. Students are allowed three unexcused absences
per semester. After that 1 percentage point is lost per absence (unless
formally excused) until a maximum of 5 percentage points have been reached.
There will be three dictation quizzes, eight singing quizzes, a Final dictation and Final singing test. Students will be required to use MacGAMUT to practice their aural skills.
The grading system is as follows:
Weight toward the final grade 3 dictation quizzes 100 points @ 35% 8 singing quizes, 100 points @ 25% 1 final dictation, 100 points 15% 1 final singing test, 100 points 10% MacGAMUT and class participation 15%
Please make sure you have music manuscript paper available at all sessions since there will be a fair amount of individual writing in class. The grading scale is as follows:
60 - 62 D- 62 - 68 D 68 - 70 D+ 70 - 72 C- 72 - 78 C 78 - 80 C 80 - 82 B- 82 - 88 B 88 - 90 B+ 90 - 92 A- 92 - 98 A 98 -100 A+
