Course Description Prerequisites: MUSI V1002 or the equivalent. All students, without exception, who wish to take Diatonic must pass an entrance examination given on the first day of class in each section. For a detailed description of the Diatonic entrance exam, and advice on preparing for it, contact the Director of Undergraduate Theory Instruction. Corequisites: An ear-training class (MUSI V1312, V2314-V2315, V3316-V3317, or W4318-W4319). “Diatonic” is a two-semester course that constitutes the first year of the two-year sequence of courses in music theory required of all music majors and concentrators (the “main theory sequence,” of which the second year is MUSI V3321-V3322). Assigned readings, musical analysis, and compositional exercises, designed to teach the following: (1) analysis and composition of melodies; (2) strict (species) counterpoint in two voices; (3) the idiomatic use of all diatonic chords in major and minor keys, and tonicizations of secondary key areas; (4) principles of figured bass; (5) four-part writing; (6) harmonization of melodies, e.g., chorales; (7) basic principles of musical form. Each semester includes some work in tonal composition, e.g., minuets for piano modeled on examples by Haydn and Mozart.
