MUS-262 Contemporary Music Theory Applications

This course is designed with the intent of assisting those studying Music in areas where they find themselves playing music in "non-notational settings." Students who major in Music Therapy, Songwriting, or Music Ministry often find themselves in a position where they either read or need to create "chord charts" or "lead sheets." This course is one that will give the student more confidence in their ability to utilize this type of musical expression so they effectively play with little hindrance, enabling them to focus on other important aspects of their discipline. The piano will be the primary way of applying the course material and this course will be taught in the piano lab. Prerequisites: MUS 162 and MUS 165.
