MUT3651: Classical Harmony

Description: This course explores the harmonic principles of the Classical or "galant" style of 18th-century Western music, as well as their continued influence on musical styles of the 19th and 20th centuries. Through exercises in composition and analysis, students will learn about the generative role of harmony in the creation of original music. This course may be taken by non-music majors who have some background in music theory and would like to develop their understanding of the subject further, as well as by music majors who would like to develop their music theory knowledge beyond their required music theory coursework. Permission of the instructor is required to register for this course.
