It provides musicianship training in aural, reading and keyboard skills and an introduction to Finale software. Students will learn to analyse harmony and to compose melodies and simple chordal accompaniments in song and theme and variation forms. Keyboard and aural classes will build on the theoretical content presented in lectures.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
The computer programs Auralia (aural training) and Musition (music theory training) will be used to do the online Aural and Theory quizzes, and these will be downloaded by students or accessed on the computers in the music area.
