NEED A THEORY, HARMONY, OR SIGHTSINGING TUTOR?
The ARCT Analysis course provides advanced students with the vocabulary and awareness needed to effectively locate key structural aspects of music, and discuss their implications in regards to musical organization. While advanced 20th century topics such as twelve tone composition, serial music and ordered pitch set labels are discussed, the majority of the examination will concern itself with the analysis of fugue and sonata form. Students must be able to recall the advanced chords they learned in ARCT harmony in order to achieve success. Students should also acquaint themselves with William E. Caplin's basic concepts of phrase analysis such as sentences and periods, which are not covered in previous grades, but are required here.
I recommend taking ARCT Harmony first, then ARCT Analysis, and then ARCT History, in that order.
