Open only to students who qualify for provisional advanced placement through the ESPA. This course is designed for students entering the college in the first semester. After a brief review of the content of Harmony 3, the course continues with further discussion of the principles of modern chord progression: deceptive resolutions of secondary dominants; dominant 7th chords without dominant function; contiguous dominant motion; review of melodic construction, form and melody/harmony relationship; modal interchange; pedal point and ostinato; modal harmony and modal composition; compound chords; and hybrid voicings and constant structures.
