Music Online Music Units at the University of Tasmania. The University of Tasmania is offering two online courses that have no tuition fees or debt and for those enrolling in the Music Skills B course they will also get free access to Musition and Auralia, online.

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.
