This course focuses on acquiring the skills to "translate" music from the audible to the written or from the written to the audible, utilizing the singing voice as a tool for clarifying, verifying, internalizing and communicating musical thought. Students will learn to sing, sight sing, and take dictation involving basic musical materials including diatonic melodies and bass roots at once, harmonic progressions including secondary dominants and inverted chords, and rhythms in common and 'odd time signatures'.
JAZZ 184 with a grade of C- or higher, and JAZZ 131 as a pre- or co-requisite
