Student Learning Outcomes

Course Name: Musicianship III
Course Number: MUS 145
Course Objectives:
  • MUS 6B students will be able to sing on sight a short melody that mixes stepwise motion and occasional skips to outline a tonicized half cadence.
  • MUS 6B students will be able to transcribe the soprano voice, bass voice and harmony (using Roman numerals and figures) of a six-chord four-part progression played four times at the piano. This progression may use any of the harmonic devices covered in MUS 5B and 6A with the addition of the Neapolitan sixth and the root position augmented sixth chord.
  • Perform at sight rhythm pieces and patterns in simple meters that create syncopation at the subdivisional level.
  • Perform at sight rhythm pieces and patterns with irregular meters, changing time signatures and tuplets.
  • Sing memorized melodies, melodic patterns and duets outlining chord progressions that incorporate mode mixture, the Neapolitan, augmented sixth chords and modulations to foreign keys using moveable-do solfege.
  • Sing at sight melodies, melodic patterns and duets outlining chord progressions that incorporate mode mixture, the Neapolitan and augmented sixth chords using moveable-do solfege.
  • Sing at sight melodies, melodic patterns and duets that modulate to closely-related keys.
  • Sing the chromatic scale, the whole tone scale, the octatonic scale and all church modes from a given starting pitch.
  • Aurally distinguish between major triads, minor triads, diminished triads, augmented triads, major seventh chords, minor seventh chords, major-minor seventh chords, half-diminished seventh chords and fully-diminished seventh chords.
  • Aurally recognize all simple and compound intervals.
  • Dictate, in correct music notation, rhythm pieces and patterns that employ a simple beat and create syncopation at the subdivisional level.
  • Dictate, in correct music notation, rhythm pieces and patterns with tuplets.
  • Dictate, in correct music notation, melodies and melodic patterns that incorporate mode mixture, the Neapolitan, augmented sixth chords and modulations to closely-related keys.
  • Dictate, in correct music notation and Roman numerals, the chords, soprano and bass for phrase-length four-part progressions that make use of mode mixture, the Neapolitan, augmented sixth chords, common tone diminished seventh chords and modulations to closely-related keys.
