Tonal Theory II continues to survey the foundations of tonal music as conceived and practiced throughout eighteenth-century Europe. The course combines modern pedagogical methods with the study of relevant historical sources and incorporates active learning at the keyboard. Topics to be covered include modulation; melodic principles; voice-leading strategies; schema theory (and its application not only to eighteenth-century music but also to blues, folk, and pop); improvisation, including the realization of solfeggi and partimenti; rhythm, meter, and the musical embodiment of gestures; the study of topoi and social registers; and simple formal analysis.
