Amcanion cyffredinol

This module aims to develop students’ understanding of the main elements of musical language – melody, harmony, counterpoint, rhythm – through the study of compositional practice in the late Renaissance and Baroque periods.

Cynnwys cwrs

Students work through a course of study which will develop score reading and analytical skills, creativity, and a thorough understanding of the parameters for the construction of music during the periods in question. WXM 1004 is intended for those students who have little or no prior knowledge of harmonic or contrapuntal principles (e.g. those who have not done chorale harmonization as part of A-Levels or equivalent), or those students who lack confidence in their skills in this area.
