About Music 402A

PREREQUISITE: Acceptance into 360R (private lessons / studio class) or instructor's consent.

Course Description

This course is designed to survey the development of solo vocal literature.  Music covered in this course will be limited to classical song literature – song written in a classical style for solo voice and piano.  Classes will consist of lecture and discussion of materials (textbook, audio recordings, written music) and special presentations.

Study will include composers and musical styles, as well as structural and nationalistic characteristics of the genre of song.  Survey of composers will include the prominent composers of each era and language – English, Italian, German, and French, and additional languages as class time permits.
