MUS 107 - Music Theory I

3 hours
The student will study in detail and become familiar with intervals, triads, and seventh chords in both major and minor scales. It is important that the student become familiar with the color of each degree of the scale through many rigorous exercises in class and through assigned homework. The class will cover material that includes common chord modulation, cadences, and the importance of the dominant seventh chord and all of its inversions and resolutions. Secondary dominants will also be introduced. These concepts will be applied to musical examples and to music that the student is studying when appropriate to the theory being studied in class.

This course will satisfy the fine arts core area requirement.
