TEST: THEORY 302 - Survey of Modern Music

Recommended Posts

Instructor: @Monarcheon
Students: max. 10
Expectations: Composers will learn about music from the contemporary/modern period, analyze it deeply, and will write music in this style. This should span over about a month and composition assignments will be used.
Week 1: Bartok - form
Week 2: Webern - interval set/vectors
Week 3: Messiaen - rhythms/time
Week 4: Cage - intro to musical philosophy AKA "real theory" 
Special Notes: This is our first test long-form masterclass... structured to be more like an actual class. It's a test because I don't know how many people will be interested/care.
Let me know if you're interested in the comments.

This sounds great! I would love to be in this class.

Are there any requirements for being in it?


Just know basic music writing/theory/rhythm skills. Be ready to have an open mind, as the subjects will get advanced quite quick.

For everyone else, I'm going to try to aim for 5 people in the class before I get started.

I'd love to take part as well! Especially in the first week. Bartok's forms always fascinate me. HIs compositions always hold together so well, but I don't always understand why.
