"Music Theory for Non-Majors II" is a continuation of "Music Theory for Non-Majors I." It is a partly theoretical, partly skills-based approach to learning the basics of music theory. In addition to covering more advanced rudiments (all diatonic 7th chords, all common types of cadences and phrase structures, simple chromaticism, larger forms, etc.), students will complete counterpoint and part-writing exercises, do rhythmic and solfege exercises in class and write short compositions. For the final exam, students will be expected to do some or all of the following: write a two-part melodic dictation; complete a simple harmonic dictation; sing melodies with solfege (prepared and at sight); analyze form (either aurally or visually); analyze phrase structures, cadences, Roman Numerals, and non-chord tones; realize a figured bass; and harmonize a soprano line (SATB).
