Seminar Music Theory: Schenkerian Analysis

This course will provide students with a thorough grounding in Heinrich Schenker's theory of tonal structure. The associated analytical technique will be developed through weekly assignments and a final project. A number of specialized topics - including the theory's implications to performance, composition, and improvisation - will be explored through readings from the Schenkerian literature.
