What a mix!

March 2, 2009

Tomorrow in my music theory class, we start with a performance of “Shenandoah” for mandolin and guitar with 3 part harmony; after singing and analyzing “Wie scho╠łn leuchtet der Morgenstern” we will harmonize a chorale tune in the style of JS Bach. After the break we will do a group sing, with harmony of “Freight Train”

and finish off the class with an analysis of the first movement of the Mozart g minor symphony.

In the last class, we harmonized a melody in chorale style, and analyzed a Scarlatti sonata.

The class before that, I introduced all the diatonic secondary dominants, and analyzed “Gymnopedie” by Erik Satie.

[Mark O’Connor is around, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he pops in to say hello.]

Love the windmill and acting in that vid to Satie. This is my personal favorite. The vid is a little lacking…
