About this Unit
In 2018 this unit replaced by 102565 - Songwriting and Music Theory. This unit continues to study techniques used in writing music of a variety of styles, from different places and periods of history as well as on compositional voice related to composing. Course work includes composition in set styles, and the freer exploration of techniques in creative writing especially with regard to texture. Keyboard and aural classes will include practical experience in areas relating to the lectures. The unit aims to accommodate students who possess both score and aural literacy skills.
