This course covers essential theory and ear training skills used by professional performers, songwriters, composers, and improvisers. We will focus on diatonic major and minor triads and seventh chords, chord inversions, diatonic suspensions and added notes, intervals, sight-singing melodies and rhythms, recognizing common chord progressions, and fitting melodies and chord progressions together. Music Theory and Ear Training is a requisite course for the music minor and major.
