My last musicology session discussed the various ways in which the elements of music impacted our appreciation of music. Factors such as dynamics, texture, timbre, harmony, melody etc are interesting – as they can be discussed with all age groups – from first school to PhD. In fact I remember them being introduced into the National Curriculum (in the UK) well over 20 years ago – and used them as a way of encouraging school kids to appreciate music. For this blog – I am interested on the ways in which the elements of music are used to impact musical form specifically. How do factors such as time signatures, rhythm, texture, melody, harmony etc impact our understanding and interest of form in music? This session will act as a grounding for more advanced study in the weeks to come. See the powerpoint for more information and indicative musical examples.
