Music Systems is a multi-semester course sequence containing two areas of study: written analytical skills and aural skills. MUSC 4B is the fourth course in this sequence, which focuses on advanced aural skills acquisition, and is designed primarily for students in the B.M. degree program. Skills areas include dictation, sight-singing, sight-reading performance, and aural analysis; with an increased level of complexity over MUSC 3B. Examples for study are drawn primarily from the Renaissance through late Twentieth-Century compositions of the Western European and American traditions, with supplementary examples drawn from other musical practices when appropriate.
