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.
Acceptance into the VCC Music Diploma program or permission of instructor.
It is highly recommended (but not required) that students also take MUSC 1303 Theory and Practice of Music 1 concurrently.
