Kodály Solfège III (MUSC 2101)

This course builds upon Kodaly Solfege 1201 and covers the development of aural skills, dictation, musicianship, and fluency in relative solmization. Topics include the moveable do method (including the Curwin hand signs and la-based minor), listening, sight-singing, rhythm, inner ear hearing, intonation, part-singing, dictation, music theory, analysis, ostinato work, mixed meter conducting, and modes. Harmonic minor intervals and longer chord progression dictations from the harmonic minor using both chord symbols and roman numerals are introduced. Dictations contain more chromaticism and an emphasis is placed on choosing the appropriate cells of solfege to best represent a harmonic analysis and help sight-sing modulations and ‘tonicizations’.
