ARTS 1010 - Music and Sound

This course, which is the prerequisite for further courses in music theory and in computer music, is an introduction to the materials of music. Using a variety of examples from classical, popular, and non-western music, the class will introduce concepts of melody, harmony, rhythm, and musical form. Students will use their laptop computers for aural skills practice, notation, and basic recording exercises. Although no musical experience is required for this course, sight singing is one of the important skills to be developed.

When Offered: Fall and spring terms annually.

Credit Hours: 4
