This is a practical course for those interested in gaining knowledge and understanding of classical harmony.
An understanding of the fundamentals of classical harmony is essential to a full appreciation of the music of that period. It also develops skills and understanding that provide a firm foundation for more creative work in music.
The course will cover the basics of harmony by taking the students through a series of straightforward, structured exercises. These exercises are designed to emphasise the craftsmanship of harmony and to relate to actual classical practice.
The course follows on from: 'Exploring Basic Music Theory' but it is not necessary to have taken that course to participate fully in this one!
The course is designed to welcome beginners, although basic musical literacy is necessary for full participation. Previous experience in playing an instrument or singing is an advantage but is not an essential requirement.
