MUSC 2071 - Advanced Ear Training I

Credits: 2

Course Description: This course is a continuation of MUSC 1072 - Ear Training II . It is designed to help the music student strengthen their advanced musical abilities through focused listening and sight singing. Topics include advanced melodies (chromaticism, non-harmonic tones), advanced rhythms (syncopation, asymmetrical rhythms, dotted rhythms) and advanced chord progressions (7th chords, applied dominants, modulation). This course applies many of the concepts learned concurrently in MUSC 2061 - Advanced Music Theory I .
