Music Theory: Musical Form
- 0 (Registered)
This course, Music Theory: Musical Form, focuses on teaching you about the six models in classical music from sonata-allegro to rondo form. You will learn how each model was formed and the difference between each of them. This course also teaches you about the features of verse and chorus and how the same material can return at certain points in a musical piece.
The course discusses the four functional types that will show up in sonata-allegro form which are thematic, cadential, developmental, and transitional. You will learn when each of these types can occur in a musical piece and what they represent when used. This course also teaches you about musical techniques such as pedal point and ostinato.
This course is suitable for beginners interested in strengthening their aural listening skills and those with an interest in music theory. This course is the third in the music theory courses; therefore, Alison’s courses, Music Theory: Instruments and Rhythm, and Music Theory: Melody and Harmony, should be completed before starting this course.
