EVDIV 050 — Elements of Musicianship

Joseph Mohan
Musicianship is an essential set of skills for becoming a more educated musician and listener. In this yearlong course, students become acquainted with the musical language and learn to recognize basic musical intervals and other important patterns, as well as sing and dictate melodies. The course begins with a thorough introduction to the fundamentals of musicianship, theory, and notation using letter names for musical pitches, and the basics of harmony and scales through the use of scale degrees. The first semester covers the treble clef, all major scales, all major key signatures, time signatures, conducting in patterns of two, three, and four, and subdividing a beat into two equal parts. The remainder of the course covers bass clef, minor key signatures and scales, and dividing the beats into three and four parts. Building on this material, students learn to sight-read, first with rhythm alone using basic rhythmic values, then with melodic elements. Placement interview required.
