Music Skills B is a beginner online music theory and aural unit from the University of Tasmania.
Music Skills B assumes a basic knowledge of music-reading and will introduce students to the structures of music theory through notation and listening. Once students have completed this unit they should be able to:
• Write and read pitch and rhythm components of music notation;
• Write and read major and minor scales, intervals, key signatures, diatonic triads and organise rhythm in simple and compound meters;
• Identify and apply correct musical terminology to describe elements of pitch and rhythm;
• Aurally recognise and interpret these music elements through graded listening and transcription assignments.
Students enrolled in Music Skills B will also receive free access to Musition and Auralia, online cloud-based music software from Rising Software.
This unit is offered under a full HECS-Scholarship and will not incur tuition fees.
Applications are now open and you can apply for the unit through this link: http://www.utas.edu.au/arts/music-skills-b.
Please note that while the University of Tasmania offers Music Skills A this unit is not a prerequisite for Music Skills B.
