Harmony and Analysis

This forty-five minutes class investigates harmonic structure in music through improvisation, composition, analysis, and keyboard performance.

At SPACE students learn the precious art of harmony and composition writing/analysis techniques. This enables the students to write and understand music with grace, elegance, distinction, and especially clearness of ideas. Without this instruction, the writing style of the student can be awkward and heavy; moreover, it is this that teaches us the art of

  • rich, entrancing, or smooth sonorities
  • happy modulations coming sensibly and appropriately
  • true equilibrium
  • balanced proportions within the tonal edifice

Students may take this class with the Advance level of Theory and Solfège class. The class consists of two levels. Students will take three exams each semester. Accomplished students will continue to the next level every other semester.

This class is required for professional program students and advance level students.
