Course content

Bwriad y modiwl hwn yw dysgu'r sylfeini ar gyfer cerddorfaeth gyfoes. Bydd pob enghraifft cerddorol yn deillio o gyfansoddwyr o gyfnodau Clasurol, Rhamantaidd a'r Ugeinfed Ganrif (e.e. Beethoven, Rachmaninov a Prokofiev) sydd wedi dylanwau yn gryf ar gyfansoddwyr ffilm heddiw (e.e. John Williams, Dario Marianelli a David Arnold). Bydd y cwrs yn ddechrau gyda'r Gerddorfa Linynnol gan ychwanegu offerynau chwyth a pres yn raddol. Erbyn wythnos darllen, bydd y myfyriwr yn medru trefnu yn hyderus ar gyfer cerddorfa fechan. Yn ystod yr ail hanner, bydd pwyslais ar dechnegau cerddorfaeth ar gyfer cerddorfa lawn gan ychwanegu mwy o offerynnau.

Bwriad y cwrs yw dysgu cerddorddfaeth draddodiadol gyda phwyslais ar ddefnydd mewn cerddorfaeth ffilm.
