A foundation-level module in the language, techniques and history of tonal music, this course covers:
We'll examine case studies in classical and popular music to illustrate these areas – and demonstrate how different musical styles are constructed.
You'll also have the opportunity to work with students of Popular Music/ SUM0071 (composers and performers) and Music Management/ SUM0046 (to evaluate the roles of administrators, promoters, agents and managers within the music business).
A diverse range of music will be drawn upon during this module, however certain composers/artists (i.e. J. S. Bach, Beethoven, Maxwell Davies) will feature repeatedly to familiarise students with how different musical styles are constructed.
Staff-developed learning materials will be used, though certain key texts relevant at this level include, among others, A History of Western Music, eds. Burkholder, Grout, Palisca (7th edn; London: Norton, 2006), various articles from the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, and music theory manuals such as those published by the ABRSM, George Pratts The Dynamics of Harmony: Principles and Practice (Oxford UP, 1997), and Dorothy Pillings Harmonisation of Melodies at the Keyboard, Books 1-3 (Forsyth, 1950, and subsequent editions).
Recordings and scores will be studied, as directed.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
