In this course we will work on anaylzing new music. A copy of reader of articles and scores is waiting for you at the Union. You may each make one copy of the reader for your own use. We will focus on readings on Tuesdays and Analytical Work on Thursdays; the pieces for the class come (in large part) from the readings. You may listen to the pieces on line on the Player to the right.

Since this is an advanced graduate class, regular and punctual attendance is assumed. One cut is allowed; each subsequent cut will lower your final grade 1/3 a letter. Excused absences (medical emergencies and scheduled UNT COM activities) will not affect your grade.

You will write one-page beginnings of papers for each Thursday's discussion of music. These pages should sound like the beginnings of analytical papers; they will articulate an analytic thesis and cover one musical example from / of the work in question.

Grades will be determined as follows:

  • Daily Participation and Writing = 20%
  • Seminar Paper = 80%
