Music Theory 1 Week One Notes Day 1 Review of Fundamentals of Theory Scales - Major scales: steps- W W H W W W H - Minor scales: steps- W H W W H W W - 3 “types” of minor- Natural, Harmonic, Melodic - Circle of Fifths/Circle of Fourths - Modes Modes of major scale (example used will be Gmajor scale) - tonic (G) - super tonic (A) - mediant (B) - subdominant (C) - dominant (D) - submediant (E) - leading tone (F#) - tonic (G) (correspond note letters with the modes above) Modes of minor scale (example used will be Gminor melodic) - tonic (G) - super tonic (A) - mediant (Bb) - subdominant (C) - dominant (D) - submediant (E) - leading tone (F#) - tonic (G) - subtonic (F natural) *only in minor we will classify this as subtonic and not leading tone because subtonic is a whole step lower from tonic - submediant (Eb) *today in class, we reviewed fundamentals of music theory. Be sure that you review scales, chords, and sevenths. Refer to Completion 1 to get review of chords and sevenths using the links provided on the sheet. Day 2 Diatonic Chords Major Scales Be able to know what chords are what in the diatonic major scale Minor scales Be able to know what chords are what in the diatonic minor scale as well Let’s review (from styles): review from handout 2 Homophonic texture- one distinct voice being supported by other voices (two different types) - chordal: involves note-against-note relationship (called homorhythmic) between voices - melody and accompaniment: (most familiar out of all homophonic textures) consists of a salient melody and an accompaniment that supports it Polyphonic/contrapuntal Texture- two or more voices being played at the same time (two different types) - imitative counterpoint: two or more independent voices in which one voice states a musical idea that is immediately restated in another voice at a new pitch level - non-imitative counterpoint (give and take): consists of two or more independent voices that have different musical ideas and is not immediately restated in another voice at a new pitch level Different types of Contrapuntal motions (refer to handout 3) - contrary: notes moving in opposite directions played at the same time (look closely at the lines and direction the music is going in which you clearly see the music moving in different directions) - parallel: notes moving in the same direction - similar: notes are moving in the same direction, but in different intervals - oblique motion: one voice stays the same one voice moves *today in class, we reviewed Completion 1 and learned about texture in depth. Back page of Completion 1 is crucial in that it is related to different types of textures used in the excerpts provided. You should be able to identify and explain the textures of any given excerpts in depth using measure numbers, melodic lines, and rhythmic patterns.
