A sequential continuation of Advanced Theory II. It will continue from the topics related to the cadential seventh chord and its role in the musical form of the classical period to the expansion of tonality through chromaticism in the romantic period. This course incorporates the study of harmonic tonal procedures, musical analysis of selected pieces and the acquisition of the practical and theoretical skills needed to comprehend, perform and write short compositions using the idioms of the 18th and early 19th century. The study of modulation, altered chords and forms will be reinforced with dictation using seventh chords and sight reading using treble, alto and bass clefs. Prerequisite: Theory II (or its equivalent) or permission of the instructor, Elena Lucas.
