Preparatory Musicianship 1 (MUSC 1011)
Preparatory Musicianship 1 is the first of a two-course sequence that introduces beginners to practical musicianship. In level 1 students learn the fundamentals of reading rhythms and melodies, performing rhythms and sight-singing melodies, 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.
It is highly recommended (but not required) that students also take MUSC 1023 Preparatory Music Theory 1 and MUSC 1054 Preparatory Class Piano 1 concurrently.
