Musicianship 1 (MUSC 1301)

Musicianship 1 is the first of a four-course sequence that introduces music students to practical musicianship. In level 1 students learn the fundamentals of reading rhythms and melodies, performing rhythms and sight-singing melodies, improvising basslines and other melodies based on cadential progression, song forms, phrase structure, cadences, major, minor and pentatonic scales and diatonic modes. Kodaly Solfege (relative-pitch, moveable-Do) and South Indian Solkattu (rhythm syllables) are the primary technical foundations.
