An introduction to the rudiments of musical notation, from both written and aural perspectives. Students will learn to read musical notation, including staff notation and rhythm, and discover the building blocks of music: pitch, key, mode, scale, interval, chord, and transposition. The course is intended for those students in Arts, Science, and Education with a lively interest in the subject but who have no formal background, as well as for students in music who require remediation before entering first-year theory. This course cannot be counted towards a B.Mus. degree. Cross-registered with (Music) 64:110.
3 lecture hours per week, one term.
