Music Theory 4

Students will learn how to use pitch-class set analysis (identifying, labeling, and comparing any groups of pitches) and various serial techniques (including the twelve-tone method), as well as to analyze post-impressionistic techniques (bichordalism, polytonality, quartal and quintal harmony, secundal harmony, and pandiatonicism) and identify (and possibly write with) a variety of rhythmic, indeterminate, minimalist, microtonal and possibly other contemporary techniques.
