Intensive music theory immersion class designed for high school students planning on entering college as a music major (but open to anyone musically literate). No prior knowledge of harmony required but those with some knowledge will build on their foundation.

We will cover:

By the end, students will hopefully be able to:
-Analyze a Baroque dance or Classical symphony or keyboard sonata for 
form and harmony
-Sing or dictate a relatively short diatonic melody, major or minor
