As a foundational course, MUI1013 will introduce students to basic requirements for the successful academic study of music. The course begins with analytical listening in a wide variety of genres. The fundamentals of traditional music theory are discovered through engagement with repertoire. A series of activities encompassing analysis, aural skills and notational literacy will guide the student through an understanding of tonality, rhythm, musical forms and expression through musical means.
Students will learn to apply conventional musical terminology to familiar sounds in order to learn to communicate musical ideas effectively, enabling creative collaboration with peers throughout the program. Formative assessment tasks will be used to develop aural and music literacy skills.
