Students are required to pass an entrance test to enrol in this unit.
Music Materials 1 introduces students to the materials of tonal music through the study of diatonic harmony, reading skills and aural skills. Students will develop fluency in notation and principles of pitch and rhythmic organisation through reading and written exercises. The study of musical forms will be introduced through analysis of works in the literature. Students will develop an understanding of the correlation between written notation and aural awareness, through exercises in sight‐reading, dictation and identification of musical elements.
