Means of accomplishing learning outcomes:
The instructor will provide a study of large scale forms, fugue and late Romantic and Twentieth Century harmonic practices. Written assignments and class drills are required. The course is taught via a combination of lectures, in-class exercises, collaboration, and out-of-class assignments. The instructor will monitor individual progress, and group experiences will be a feature of each class period. The instructor will hold weekly office hours to address further questions and student needs outside of class time. The final grade will be based on out-of-class assignments, exams, and a comprehensive final exam.
Students are expected to:
- Arrive to class on time
- Participate in discussions and be focused in class
- Complete all assignments, exams and comprehensive final exam.
- Turn in assignments on time
Make‑up work is the responsibility of the student, as covered in the instructor’s First Day Handout.
