This is the forth in a series of five courses that aim to develop skills and the understanding of musical organisation, structures and techniques, shared musical vocabularies, aural skills, musical representation and communication. Examples from a wide diversity of musical styles are presented. The course also provides the opportunity to apply these tools and abilities creatively in any genre or era as defined by the interest of the student. This course particularly focuses on developed and advanced harmonic procedures, analysis and musical problem solving.
At the successful completion of this course students will be able to:
1. demonstrate an understanding of harmonic techniques and processes that are specific to certain musical styles and eras, including classical, popular, jazz and world music and their application in musical composition, performance and production.

3. demonstrate a advanced level aural recognition and transcription skills
4. demonstrate the ability analyse musical process and to communicate these analyses in written and spoken forms
5. demonstrate the ability to use a range of creative resources to solve musical problems
