Music Humanities & Theory

Music is expressive, dramatic, and emotional. And our response to music is more than just the passive reception of pleasure.

The Music Humanities and Theory program at MCC focuses on the study of the principles of sound manipulation as applied to the creation of music education, and the techniques of creating and arranging music education. Areas of study include: aural theory, melody, counterpoint, complex harmony, modulation, chromatics, improvisation, progressions, music educational writing, instrumentation, orchestration, electronic and computer applications, studies of specific music educational styles, and the development of original creative ability.
