In this course, students will learn the tonal audiation foundation: resting tone as well as tonic and dominant harmonic functions in major and minor tonalities.
In this course, we will learn to read macrobeats and microbeats in duple and triple meters, as well as read longer rhythmic sentences and figure out the meter.
In this course, participants will make connections between the tonic and dominant patterns in their audiation and standard musical notation by reading those same familiar patterns in familiar and unfamiliar orders. This course will only focus on major tonality.
In this course, participants will learn to read three familiar major tonic patterns, and use these three patterns to generalize more tonic patterns. Finally, we will combine tonal patterns with rhythm patterns in Reading Benchmarks.
