MUS 1601 covers the fundamentals of two-part voice leading, melody writing and all the traditional concepts of four-part writing. Secondary functions will be examined both as tonicizations of chords and as part of a study of modulations. Sight singing will focus on melodic materials featuring intervals related to the root movements being studied. Additional ear training materials will include dictation of four-part exercises and will be reinforced by keyboard exercises of similar types.
