CATALOG DESCRIPTION --

The catalog description should clearly describe for students the scope of the course, its level, and what kinds of student goals the course is designed to fulfill. The catalog description should begin with a sentence fragment

.

An introduction to harmony and musical form. Topics addressed include intervals and their inversions, triads and their inversions, part-writing, roman numeral analysis, and chord progressions involving the primary triads. The course also includes sight-singing and training in aural recognition of intervals.

Special notes or advisories (e.g. field trips required, prior admission to special program required, etc.):

PREREQUISITE COURSE(S)

No Yes Rationale for Prerequisite: Course(s):

Describe representative skills without which the student would be highly unlikely to succeed .

COREQUISITE COURSE(S)

No Yes Course(s): Curriculum Proposal: 01/23/09 (rev.) Academic Senate Approved:

Rationale for Corequisite:

RECOMMENDED PREPARATION

No Yes Course(s):

Music 1

Rationale for Recommended Preparation:

A student who has not taken Music 1 at C.R., taken a similar course elsewhere, or studied music fundamentals with a private instructor is unlikely to have the foundational body of knowledge and skills necessary for success in this course.

COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES –This section answers the question “what will students be able to do as a result of

taking this course?” State some of the objectives in terms of specific, measurable student actions (e.g. discuss, identify, describe, analyze, construct, compare, compose, display, report, select, etc.) .

For a more complete list of outcome verbs please

see Public Folders>Curriculum>Help Folder>SLO Language Chart. Each outcome should be numbered.

1. Identify each note of a scale by its recognized terminology; identify the scalar content of a given melody, using the correct terminology; identify specific scalar degrees within a given key, using the correct terminology. 2. Identify harmonic and melodic intervals by type and quality, both aurally and in notated music. 3. Supply the note a given interval above or below a given note, both vocally and via notation. 4. Construct any of the four triad types, in root position or inversion, on a given bass note. 5. Identify triads by type in notated music. 6. Enumerate correct and incorrect part-writing procedures. 7. Complete part-writing exercises using primary triads that demonstrate correct part-writing procedures. 8. Analyze chord progressions employing the primary triads using the roman numeral system.

COURSE CONTENT

–This section describes what the course is “about”-i.e. what it covers and what knowledge students will acquire

Concepts

: What terms and ideas will students need to understand and be conversant with as they demonstrate course

outcomes? Each concept should be numbered.

1. Scale degree terminology.

2. Intervals--both type (2 nd , 3 rd , 4 th , 5 th , etc.) and quality (augmented, major, perfect, minor, diminished).

3. Interval inversion, both type (2 nd inverts to 7 th , 3 rd inverts to 6 th , etc.) and quality (augmented inverts to diminished, major inverts to minor, etc.).

4. Triad types (augmented, major, minor, diminished).

5. Triad positions (root position, first inversion, second inversion).

6. Part-writing (i.e. voice leading) procedures.

7. Roman numeral analysis symbols.

8. Harmonic functionality (tonic, subdominant, and dominant functions).

Issues

: What primary tensions or problems inherent in the subject matter of the course will students engage? Each issue

should be numbered.

1. Principle of inversion--reckoning distances either above or below a given note. 2. Memorization (of scale degree nomenclature, roman numeral symbols, inversion procedures, part-writing procedures). 3. Connecting cognitive skills (recognition of musical intervals and scalar patterns on paper) with aural skills (the ability to recognize the same intervals aurally and to vocally reproduce them). 4. Tension between maintaining stepwise, vocal melodic lines (the horizontal element) and coherent chord progressions (the vertical element) in part-writing. Themes

: What motifs, if any, are threaded throughout the course? Each theme should be numbered.

1. Principle of inversion. 2. The three triadic functions (tonic, subdominant, dominant). 3. Voice-leading procedures: correct triadic doublings, holding the common tone in a given voice in consecutive chords, resolving the leading tone in a given voice in consecutive chords, etc.

Skills

: What abilities must students have in order to demonstrate course outcomes?

(E.g. write clearly, use a scientific calculator, read college-level texts, create a field notebook, safely use power tools, etc).

Each skill should be numbered.

1. Visualization (of any interval from a given pitch, either ascending or descending; of any triad type built on a given bass note). 2. Vocal reproduction (sing the note a given intervallic distance below or above a pitch). 3. Match pitch with other class members in intervallic training and sight-singing exercises. 4. Aural recognition (aurally identify the intervallic distance between two consecutive pitches). 5. Memorization and application of part-writing (i.e. voice leading) principles, scalar nomenclature, and roman numeral analysis symbols.

REPRESENTATIVE LEARNING ACTIVITIES –This section provides examples of things students may do to engage the

course content (e.g., listening to lectures, participating in discussions and/or group activities, attending a field trip). These activities should relate directly to the Course Learning Outcomes. Each activity should be numbered.

1. Listening to lectures. 2. Writing notes at given intervallic distances above or below a given note. 3. Singing notes at given intervallic distances above or below a given note. 4. Identifying the notes in a given melody according to scalar content. 5. Singing a given melody on sight. 6. Writing triads of various types on a given bass note. 7. Writing a given triad in root position, first inversion, or second inversion. 8. Completing part of a part-writing exercise at the board by supplying the missing notes of the chord and identifying the chord's roman numeral symbol.

ASSESSMENT TASKS –This section describes assessments instructors may use to allow students opportunities to provide evidence of achieving the Course Learning Outcomes. Each assessment should be numbered.

Representative assessment tasks (

These are examples of assessments instructors could use)

: 1. Ear-training/sight-singing exams.

2. Roman numeral analysis projects.

Required assessments for all sections

(These are assessments that are required of all instructors of all sections at all campuses/sites. Not all courses will have required assessments. Do not list here assessments that are listed as representative assessments above.)

: 1. Written quizzes.
