Theoretical skills developed include the recognition of clefs and key signatures, intervals, chords and tonal harmony, simple and compound rhythms, melodic structures and voice leading. Students will examine the principles of theory and progress through the study of the development of tonal and non-tonal theory in Western music. Students learn the theoretical aspects of music making while developing the key skills in music literacy and harmonic analysis that are integral to contemporary music practice. Students will also develop aural skills and sight singing ability, that is centred on honing secure listening and reading skills.
