The course teaches the basic techniques of Schenkerian analysis, a method for understanding musical works through analysis using musical notation to represent aural experience. The course emphasizes basic concepts of linear, contrapuntal, and harmonic structure in tonal music; these concepts guide analyses of short compositions and excerpts from longer works. Students learn to express their analytical insights through the preparation of analyses presented in Schenker's style of musical notation.
