The History and Theory of Music

The History and Theory of Music

"'Tis your thoughts that now must deck our kings,
Carry them here and there; jumping o'er times,
Turning the accomplishment of many years
Into an hour-glass: for the which supply,
Admit me, Chorus, to this history."

- Shakespeare, Henry V, Prologue

The purpose of this unique course is to track the development of music theory throughout its historical and cultural context. Students should develop a firm grasp of the fundamentals of music theory and a love and appreciation for the artistic traditions that have come down to us today.
