Fundamentals - Part 1 Designed for the absolute beginner to build skills necessary to succeed in music! Using a free web-based software called flat.io, you’ll be able to not only place the notes on the page, but this hands on approach will enable you to hear what you’ve created in real time. Harmony - Part 2 Expand on the skills from your first class by exploring harmony, melody, and interval training. We will work on writing for two instruments in harmony by placing strong emphasis on proper techniques of part-writing and interval recognition to help produce the harmonies you want to create. Composition - Part 3 Take the skills you’ve learned in the previous classes and start composing music from the get go! Explore harmony even further while diving into chord structure and chord progressions that are found in the most popular music from Mozart to today! Focus will be on melodic writing for chords learned, best practices for basic 4-part chorale writing, and creation of original pieces!
