77 Arts Academy will be offering the following non-credit courses beginning Fall 2013 taught by NEC faculty members. Subject to sufficient enrollment. Now enrolling. Course details below.
This will be a basic musicianship course, introducing fundamental principles of music theory. We will cover clefs and the grand staff, scales, intervals, key signatures, rhythm and meter, and basic chord functions and cadences. Additional topics may include, but are not limited to: counterpoint, musical phrase structures, musical form, and a more advanced study of harmony.
In addition to helping you develop basic musicianship skills necessary for reading and writing western musical notation, it will also focus on training your ears to recognize intervals, chord progressions, cadences, and phrase structure. This will ultimately enable you to engage with music more closely and critically as a listener, and will foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of music.

OFFERED FALL SEMESTER
Beginning composition students are encouraged to realize their musical conceptions. Basic concepts introduced include pitch and scale organization, meter, rhythm, interval, chord, tone color, motive, phrase, melody and texture. Rudiments of counterpoint, harmony, instrumentation and standard forms are considered, with emphasis on the balance between repetition and contrast. Specific exercises are given, but students are also encouraged to write freely and to develop a style of their own.
Compositions are performed in class when possible. Prerequisite: some basic knowledge of standard music notation and a desire to compose.
