Music: listening through analysis

Course 2015-2016

Entrance requirements

In order to be able to take this course students must have passed the course Music Theory or have a similar level of knowledge and skills.

Description

In this tutorial students will learn how to analyze compositions from different musical styles. They will enlarge their understanding of the workings of the musical language by listening, reading and analyzing. If the composition of the group enables it there will also be active music making in the form of singing.
Different methods of analysis will be discussed. The purpose is to make students more aware of what is heard in the music, and also why it sounds as it does.
